Tallgrass Sudbury School offers a true alternative to conventional education, as one of the 30 schools in the United States modeled after the Sudbury philosophy of education. Tallgrass welcomes students from ages 4 to 19. We are open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily with flexible hours. Our school is located in Riverside, IL, a near western suburb of Chicago, with students drawn from Riverside, Oak Park, Berwyn, and throughout the Chicago area. Contact us to schedule a visit or learn more. 

The founders of Tallgrass took their inspiration from the Sudbury Valley School (SVS), which has been in operation since 1968. Tallgrass lives out the values of the Sudbury model in the day-to-day operations of our school.
