  • Ray Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Ray Elementary has a rich environment for academic, social and cultural learning. It is truly an amazing place to become learning partners with people from all over the world and all the various demographic groups in Chicago as well. The diversity strength is also a challenge...how to unify the school and meet all the various needs? The teachers are incredible and the administration has renewed energy to take on the tough issues that face Chicago Public Schools. Many parents are involved in various volunteer capacities to help guide positive change.

  • Ray Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Ray is on the right path in 2015! After a few difficult years under a couple of less than stellar principals, the school is finally on the right track! Principal Megan Thole and Assistant Principal Gayle Neely are terrific leaders and are working overtime to return to Ray to its former excellence. We have had wonderful and dedicated teachers all along, but no guidance at the top. With the new administration, we have seen a surge in parent enthusiasm and involvement and the atmosphere of cooperation in the building is evident. Teachers are happy. Students are better behaved. We've increased physical education time and arts instruction. We are among a minority of schools in CPS that still has a librarian. My son's special classes include Spanish, art, music, library and PE. Ray also has incredible before and after school programming, including Chicago Children's Choir, robotics, coding club, ArtShould (a U of C student-led arts enrichment program), chess, athletics, Lango, dance, Ray Progressive Ensemble and more! Last but not least, Ray School offers your child the opportunity to interact with a truly diverse community of students. Come to Ray! You will love our school.
