Tallgrass is the only Sudbury-model school in the Chicago area, and offers students the space and time to discover their true passions. Tallgrass has a policy of charging low tuition compared to other private schools and offers tuition reduction to put the Sudbury experience within the reach of as many families as possible.
If you’re new to the Sudbury philosophy, this explanation from the original Sudbury Valley School sums up the principles our school is based on: “SVS is a place where people decide for themselves how to spend their days. . . The fundamental premises of the school are simple - that all people are curious by nature; that the most efficient, long-lasting, and profound learning takes place when started and pursued by the learner; that all people are creative if they are allowed to develop their unique talents; that age-mixing among students promotes growth in all members of the group; and that freedom is essential to the development of personal responsibility.”
If you think this type of school is a valuable option for families in Chicagoland, please consider making a donation. Even if you aren’t able to donate yourself, please pass this message along to others who may be interested.
Thank you for your support of Tallgrass! Our best wishes for a great holiday season…and taxes that are just a little lower!
