The Chicago City Day School's pristine two-acre campus is located on a tree-lined residential street in Chicago's Belmont Harbor neighborhood, less than a block from Lake Shore Drive and Lake Michigan.

Spectacular classroom buildings provide 71,000 square feet of imaginative space specially designed and constructed for elementary school-aged students. The School has received national recognition from the architectural community. State-of-the-art facilities include spacious classrooms, two fully equipped science laboratories, an expansive library, two computer laboratories, two regulation-sized gymnasiums, an inviting art studio, a stimulating shop for technology education, and a sophisticated theatre. The School's expansive play yard includes a 4,000 square foot ice rink.

Parent committees organize car pools and taxi pools for interested families. Many youngsters walk to school or come via public transportation.
