Poe Classical was recently ranked #9 in Chicago Magazine's Top Chicago Elementary Schools for 2019.
2017 National Blue Ribbon School
Edgar Allan Poe Classical School was named a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.
The K-6 school, located at 10538 S. Langley Ave. in the Historic Pullman area, received the honor in the “Exemplary High Performing Schools” category for testing in the top 15 percent of all schools in Illinois. The school was one of only 16 public schools in Illinois and 342 schools nationwide to be honored with this distinction in 2017. Only 17 Chicago Public Schools have earned the prestigious award since its inception in 1982 - 6 high schools and 11 elementary schools.
Construction is underway...
Poe Classical is adding an additional building to expand to 7th and 8th grade! The new building will house a gym and cafeteria, and the existing building will be converted to increase the number of classrooms. It is anticipated that the new building will be completed by the summer of 2020.
