North Kenwood/Oakland Elementary School
The University of Chicago Charter School consists of four public school campuses that share a single overarching mission: To prepare students for success in four-year colleges. Our goal is to see 100 percent of our students be accepted to and graduate from these institutions.
Donoghue and North Kenwood/Oakland are elementary schools educating children from prekindergarten to grade five. Carter G. Woodson is a middle school, serving children from grades six to eight. Woodlawn is a secondary school educating students from grades six to twelve.
Together, the four campuses of the University of Chicago Charter School offer families a pathway to college for their children that begins with prekindergarten and continues through high school.
