Living in Hyde Park: Schools
From preschool through high school, Hyde Park’s 17 public, parochial, and private schools afford parents a wide variety of educational choices.
Among the options are Ray School, recently named an Illinois State Board of Education “Model School”; Murray Language Academy, a top-ranked magnet school; and Akiba-Schechter, the only Jewish school on Chicago’s South Side. For younger children, the Parent Cooperative for Early Learning offers a play-based preschool environment, and the Baby Ph.D. Childcare Network offers several daycare homes as well as a nanny-share program.
The University of Chicago plays a key role in educating area children. The university’s Laboratory Schools, founded in 1896 by philosopher and education reformer John Dewey, educate nearly 1,700 students each year, while the University of Chicago Charter School’s four campuses serve as national models of urban education at its best.
