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.
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.
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.
