A few Clinton first graders had the opportunity to wish the Chicago Symphony Orchestra a happy 125th birthday on stage at symphony center. Clinton is so proud of our students and teachers for developing an appreciation and understanding of the performing arts. Check out the video of Clinton students below
Join us for November’s Coffee and Conversation with the Principal. We’re hoping we have our biggest turnout this month! Bring a friend, neighbor, or another Clinton parent!
Our children get one chance at a good education. But right now that chance is being threatened by Springfield inaction. Because Springfield is failing to fully fund education – while imposing costly pension mandates – CPS faces a $480 million hole that must be filled by February 1st.

The girls cross country team had a short but great season! We competed in 2 races at Winnemac Park, the second which was a city qualifier. Great job to everyone who ran, including Alitzel Coronel (5th grade) who placed 15th with a time of 7:13 in her mile race, and Diana Garcia (8th grade) who placed 21st with a time of 12:20 in her 1.5 mile race! Way to go!
DNAinfo released an article detailing how all CPS schools in the West Ridge and Edgewater neighborhoods received ‘Good’ or ‘Excellent’ ratings for the previous school year.
Each year, Chicago Public Schools rates schools using the School Quality Rating Protocol (SQRP). Each school receives one of five ratings (3, 2, 2+, 1, and 1+) using various performance indicators. Reading and math growth and attainment are used to score schools, as well as student attendance and school organization.
Clinton is proud to have earned the HIGHEST RATING: 1+!! This is the second year in a row that Clinton has been a 1+ school. We are proud of our students, teachers, staff members, families and community partners for contributing to the continued success at Clinton Elementary.
