Chicago Free School

All Understanding Begins With Wonder


Welcome to a Different Kind of School!

At Chicago Free School we believe learning should be joyful, hands-on, and connected to the wider world.  We believe that when children direct their own learning and discover their unique passions, they unlock the power of their own intrinsic motivation and curiosity.  Our school is an inclusive community that teaches democracy and gives students and families a voice.
