Part of the Oak Park Community since 1928, St. Giles School offers academic rigor, leadership development, and faith formation for students in grades preschool through eight. We emphasize intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social development and value our diverse student body, drawing from Oak Park, Galewood, River Forest, Elmwood Park, Berwyn, and more.
Our picturesque, multi-building campus boasts open green spaces and beautiful architecture. Our outdoor classroom provides hands-on learning in science, math, and wellness and will be Wi-Fi enabled to extend learning. We utilize technology for all students, including: 1:1 iPads in junior high, Netbooks in 4th – 6th grades, robotics in our K, 3rd and 5th grade curriculum and Smart Boards in every classroom.
Our early childhood program shines, with dedicated, welcoming preschool teachers and a newly renovated facility. Our play-based approach helps students explore their creativity, build communication skills, and solve problems in an enriching environment. A variety of half-day schedules are available, with extended day and before and after care programs providing full-day options for families.
We take an interdisciplinary approach to learning and provide opportunities that augment the core curriculum, including gym, art, Spanish, music, and a professionally-staffed library. Co-curricular options include band, choir, scouting, and athletics, and enrichment programs offer cooking, engineering, dance, yoga, and more for K-8. Our students consistently score above national norms on standardized tests.
