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. 

Enrollment is open year-round! Considering Tallgrass? Email us at info@tallgrasssudbury.org to set up a visit.

Support Tallgrass by coming out to HamBingo at Hamburger Mary's in Oak Park on Tuesday, January 23rd at 8pm. Bingo cards are $15, and 100% of proceeds benefit our school! Bring your friends, and spread the word. (The show can get a little risque, so leave the kids at home.)

Join us on February 1st for a discussion with Tallgrass founder, Melissa Bradford. The topic of the talk will be Success without Stress: Avoiding the Kindergarten Rat Race. See more details and RSVP here.
