Park Forest Elementary Creative Sciences & Arts Magnet assures students that we will tap into their natural talent and academic ability. We are the perfect blend of academics, arts and high expectations. Our students participate in project-based learning opportunities that increase their content knowledge and skills, allowing opportunities to increase their understanding of critical skills needed for future success. We strive to build positive relationships with students, parents and all stakeholders for the benefit of our students. A Creative Smart Lab, Mac computer lab/renewable energy lab and a recording studio are all parts of our magnet focus along with project-based learning. We also offer dance, band, orchestra, PE, a multimedia library and basketball.
It is our charge as leadership, faculty and staff to make every day a day filled with relevant learning, meaningful instruction and social-emotional support including families and community in our day-to-day processes. We must remain relevant in our use of instructional technology to be successful in educating our students today for the future unknowns. We understand our parents are entrusting us with their children to not only educate, but also to build positive relationships that empower and change the trajectory of how students think about school. This is not easy but is necessary to produce productive young students ready to face middle school and beyond.
