From elementary through high school, our students have a voice in the school community and play an active role in their class life through student government.
Elementary Class Councils
Class Councils are 30-minute discussions led by the students, with the teacher in the role of observer. Students take turns being the Class Council president and secretary. Class matters, problems, and proposals are discussed and resolved democratically.
Elementary School Council
Delegates elected by each class sit on the Elementary School Council. The Elementary School Director serves as secretary and observer. A council president is elected for each meeting. Elementary school matters, problems, and proposals are discussed and resolved democratically.
Middle & High School Councils
The Middle School Student Council is made up of elected representatives from grades 6 through 9. The Student Council runs the student store, plans school dances, organizes an end-of-year talent show, and helps raise money and collect food for less privileged individuals in the Chicago community.
The High School Student Council is made up of elected representatives from grades 10 through 12. These representatives are consulted regarding matters of student life in the high school. The High School Student Council can also plan different events and outings for the students.
Each Middle School and High School class elects two delegates, who participate in end-of-term meetings with faculty and act as liaisons between the faculty, the administration, and their classmates.
The presidents of the two Student Councils attend School Advisory Committee meetings.
