All British School of Chicago students take IGCSEs in English language, English literature, Mathematics, Sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), Global perspectives and at least one modern foreign language and a social science, and then choose from a range of options for the remaining subjects.

Additional classes can be taken in Art and Design; Information, Communication and Technology (computer software and hardware); Design and Technology (industrial arts), Music, and Physical education. These rigorous courses require students to independently prepare course-work, monitor their own progress and study subjects in depth. The IGCSEs are excellent preparation for the IBDP which students in Years 12 and 13 follow.

The South Side School, Chicago
Courses / Programs
The South Side School is an affordable independent elementary school with a Waldorf-inspired curriculum near Chicago's Loop in the vibrant urban environment of East Pilsen and we are happy to serve Lower West Side, Pilsen and South Side communities. We draw on an 90-year-old teaching tradition that engages the "whole child" - intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically - in time with the natural developmental stages of childhood. We are focused not simply on the college your child will attend, but rather the person your child will become: curious, compassionate, self-reliant.

We are a new elementary school in Chicago, whose curriculum is inspired by Waldorf education. The uniqueness in a Waldorf education can be found mainly in how and when the students are taught-not in what they are taught. First comes the experience of the subject and from this experience comes the understanding of the concept.

This genuine learning process, from perception, to feeling, to idea, is the basis for later abstract and intellectual learning. We teach our children in the deepest manner possible, allowing lessons to become fully incorporated into the individual.
- Elementary School program
- Lower School program
- Middle School program

* Our curriculum includes Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Spanish, Chinese, Language Arts, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Music, Movement, Handwork and Outdoor play.
* In the Waldorf tradition, we intend for our classroom teacher to remain with the class until the children reach 8th grade.
