From the Principal
Wescott School is home to over 400 wonderful students in grades one through five. Our school has repeatedly been ranked in the top ten lists of best schools in Cook County by various local media such as Chicago Magazine and the Chicago Tribune. High academic expectations and standards are set by the faculty and reinforced at home by a highly involved and supportive parent community. While we are very proud of the academic recognition we receive, we are equally proud of the commitment we make to educating the whole child and developing students who become caring citizens.
Our motto is ‘One Big Family’ where everyone is included. The school day starts with our primary students cheering for the day to begin and intercom announcements led by students in which they comment on positive actions they see others doing or give suggestions how to show good character. Classical and jazz music plays in the hallway as background to the warm and welcoming feeling that comes from our faculty and student citizens.
We have tried to include all the information you might want to know about our school as a parent, student, and visitor to the site. In addition, you can look up email addresses and voice mail numbers of our staff members or use the links to go to their webpages. We welcome your participation in our community of learners.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and thank you for visiting Wescott School's website.
