McDade Elementary Classical School Reviews

By on

My grand daughter attends McDade. I think the curriculum is rigorous and the extra curricular activities are fantastic.  My grand daughter knows how to speak French from the classes she has taken there. I attended their 2009 Spring Concert and the performance was exceptionally great.  This is a Chicago Public School that is excelling in all areas.  I am grateful for the dedication of the administration and the staff.
