Chicago Friends School leases a former church school from Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church at Thorndale and Magnolia in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago.

We currently use four classrooms for grades K-sixth, and will expand to the additional classrooms as we grow through grade eight.

In addition to the classrooms, we have use of a full size gym in the building during the school day for phys ed classes, indoor recess during inclement weather, and for special projects and activities.

On Magnolia, we have a garden that the children each have beds in, and that is used for outdoor education.

Daily recess is at one of the area parks, usually Senn park on Elmdale. This also allows the students to explore the neighborhood community on a daily basis.
