WBEZ News- Sept 2017 - In Rare Departure, CPS Neighborhood School Wins Top National Award
Solomon, an O'Hare Network school in the quiet residential neighborhood of Peterson Park, is a completely accessible facility with a science lab, computer lab, automated library, and Internet connections in every classroom. The Solomon community takes pride in the great diversity of our student population and in our commitment to meeting the needs of all our students.
Hannah G. Solomon Elementary School is committed to ensuring the academic and social-emotional growth of all students to enable each student to meet his or her true potential. This progress will be achieved by facilitating collaborative curriculum planning and professional development, building active partnerships with parents and the community through transparent and frequent dialogue, promoting a culture of accountability for all adults who support student learning, integrating service providers into instructional planning, and demonstrating a culture of respect for all students from all backgrounds.
Our vision is to build confident lifelong learners at Solomon. We will do this in multiple ways. Teachers will develop a challenging and relevant curriculum and provide student-centered instruction. Students will be challenged to contribute effectively in the community and understand their role in our global society. As a school, teachers and staff will build consistency of academic, social-emotional, and health and wellness practices across the school that meets the needs of all students. Solomon will strive to fully integrate students with diverse learning, linguistic, and cultural needs into each learning community.
