Tallgrass Sudbury School is a true alternative to conventional education based on freedom, trust, and respect. Tallgrass welcomes students ages 5 to 18. Our school is located in Riverside, IL, a near western suburb of Chicago, with students drawn from throughout the Chicago area. Contact us to schedule a visit or learn more. 

Tallgrass is one of about 50 schools worldwide modeled after the Sudbury philosophy of education, pioneered by Sudbury Valley School.
