The Field School

Parent Resources

The Field School recognizes that the foremost privilege and responsibility of the education of children is with parents and guardians. As such, we seek to enter into a deliberative partnership with families to create a community of joyful learning and excellent education.

Parents as Partners

The Field School seeks to partner with families toward the goal of an excellent education for each child. To this end, we encourage families to be actively involved in the child’s life as a student. We recognize the value of communication and dialogue in this process and welcome any questions or concerns via email to or phone at (773) 309-8010.

Extended Care

The Field School recognizes the need for safe and structured child care before and after school for families who work beyond the school day hours.

In order to encourage family interaction and build community within the school, The Field School holds Saturday School two times per school year, typically late September and early March. All students and parents and guardians attend Saturday School together, participating in classroom activities and special classes for parents.
