Edward K. Duke Ellington Elementary School Chicago, IL
What makes Edward K. Ellington Elementary School Outstanding?
Ellington elementary is a balanced literacy school engaging students at their academic level, while still exposing them to grade level materials. As a part of our quest of providing differentiated instruction, our team of teachers integrate multiple strategies in order to achieve success. The TutorMate program provides not only academic support but emotional support. Students that participate in the program proudly walk over to the computer when they know it is their tutor calling in for the scheduled session. Having the one-to-one connection boost self-assessment and supports the instruction in the classroom. Our goal at Ellington is to move our students towards excellence in academics and TutorMate is one component that helps us get there.
