CWS Announces Move to the Historic Trumbull Elementary School Building in Andersonville

CHICAGO, Ill. (Feb. 20, 2018) The Chicago Waldorf School, an independent Pre-K thru 12th Grade school, has announced that they will be moving to the historic Trumbull Elementary School building at 5200 N. Ashland Ave. in Andersonville in Fall of 2018. After five years of vacancy, the corner of Ashland and Foster will be restored to a school once again. The move will be a monumental event for the Chicago Waldorf School after spending the last 23 years in the Rogers Park neighborhood. The transition to an Andersonville Campus will foster opportunities to lay roots for future growth in a community that shares school values and a facility that provides extra green space, with room to expand school programming and the student body.

Of the school’s move, Administrative Director Luke Goodwin said, “The Trumbull school was built in 1909 and served the city of Chicago for over 100 years. CWS is proud to breathe new life into this historic building and looks forward to the next 100 years with optimism and respect.”

Founded in 1974, the Chicago Waldorf School has served students across the North Side of Chicago for 44 years, most recently in the Rogers Park neighborhood. The school provides a diverse Pre-K thru 12th Grade education that supports the development of self-directed young adults dedicated to the pursuit of ongoing learning and eager to contribute positively to the global society of the 21st century. This education is rooted in the ideal that “It’s how we teach that changes everything;” supporting the belief that every student is a mathematician, author, scientist, artist, musician, and athlete with immense potential.
