At  British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park, homework is intended to consolidate our highest quality learning in the classroom for all of our private school students. 

  • Chicago Lincoln Park - Homework - Gallery

We believe that through the high quality learning that takes place in every lesson, homework is only necessary to support the curriculum and never as a substitute. All learning, both in school and as homework, is differentiated to suit the needs of the individual child, in order to allow them to progress at their own pace and challenge level, as well as optimize their individual academic potential.

Parents are informed of homework arrangements and expectations at the start of the year. Homework is consistently set each week, in a time frame that allows children to complete it after school or on weekends, depending on what suits you as a family. Clear instructions, guidance and expectations are communicated to the children and then also repeated within their homework for parents to access. If any additional information is required, parents may be contacted via email by the teacher, or indeed can email the teacher themselves if they require any clarification.
