The PBC Board approved a Partial Undertaking request from the Board of Education for a new annex at James E. McDade Elementary Classical School.
The project is anticipated to include the construction of a new annex as well as along with improvements to the existing school and site to support the school’s increased enrollment.
McDade Classical School is designed to provide a challenging liberal arts education to academically-talented students. The curriculum is accelerated in reading and mathematics, language arts, and the humanities. McDade opened as a neighborhood school in September 1961 and became a classical school for academically-talented students in September of 1978. The school is named for James Edward McDade, a former Assistant Superintendent of Chicago Public Schools.
