Dore Elementary School

7134 West 65th Street

The new John C. Dore Elementary School is home to 32 standard academic classrooms, six Pre-K/Kindergarten classrooms, and four diverse learner classrooms. Three science labs, three computer classrooms, two art rooms, and a music room with operable partition provide students with the resources for an optimal learning experience. The three-story, 114,000-square-foot facility also houses a library, kitchen and dining facilities, an administrative center, and a student services suite. A gymnasium with stage and turf play field fulfill CPS’s commitment to sports and physical activities. Further site improvements include a parking lot, play lot, landscaping and right-of-way improvements.

“In the 18 years that I’ve worked construction, I have never worked on a project so close to my house. I ride my bike when the weather is nice. There are so many kids in the neighborhood—we definitely need this school. I’m glad to be part of a project that is benefitting the children in my community.”

– Eduardo Flores, Plasterer with 18 years experience
