South Loop School is a diverse school in the heart of Chicago’s South Loop. South Loop serves families within the neighborhood boundaries and throughout the city of Chicago through its Regional Gifted Center, Fine Arts Magnet Cluster Program, Early Childhood Center, and Community School.
Students who live within the school’s attendance boundary can enroll automatically and do not have to apply. See below for documents required for registration.
Students who live outside the attendance boundary must submit a Standard Elementary Schools application between October and December. Available seats, if any, are filled via computerized lottery. Priority is given to applicants with a sibling who is currently enrolled in the school in grade K-7, and who will remain enrolled in the school for the coming school year.
