McDade Elementary Classical School Reviews
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.
