Academically Rigorous

We are a CPS Neighborhood and Magnet Cluster School with a Fine and Performing Arts Focus.

Agassiz Elementary School is also a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

Artistically Rich

In 1999, Agassiz became a Fine and Performing Arts Magnet Cluster Program.

Culturally Diverse

Now with over 500 students being served in Pre-K through eighth grade, Agassiz continues to be culturally and demographically diverse.

Our Promise

Our promise is to provide a culture of academic excellence, foster a rigorous and nurturing learning environment, and instill within students a love of learning by identifying their positive distinctions, whether academic, artistic, or athletic, thus empowering them to be responsible, contributing members of a global community.

Our Graduates

Agassiz students will be life long learners who are persistent problem solvers, are curious about the world, have a strong sense of self, and are able to articulate their thoughts, feelings, and ideas.

Agassiz students will be able to analyze a concept and determine their own viewpoint while respecting differing opinions.

Agassiz students will show integrity and empathy, and possess a foundation of knowledge that enables them to thrive in a diverse, changing society.
