Principal's Message


Welcome to Chippewa Middle School!
The professional staff, students, and families form an exciting educational community. Our collective goal is to provide an optimal learning environment for all children.

Located in the northeast part of Des Plaines, Chippewa Middle School has a proud tradition of being child-centered and academically challenging. The Chippewa community is collaborative and dedicated to maintaining a school culture that welcomes all children and families. The Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) supports this goal and provides meaningful programs and events to supplement the education environment.

The staff at Chippewa Middle School is knowledgeable and versed in the academic, social, and emotional development of children. The professional staff employ research-based best practices that serve to meet the educational needs of all students. A variety of instructional resources and materials are utilized to address District 62 and Common Core State Standards. All students receive instruction in the content areas of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. Additionally, children participate in physical education and health, as well as “Encore” classes such as art, music/drama, and industrial technology. Finally, all students participate in Olweus, which is widely recognized as a meaningful anti-bullying school curriculum.

Children at Chippewa Middle School are exposed to a highly regarded program entitled “Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports”. This program, also known as PBIS, supports the social and emotional of development of children and contributes to a safe and orderly learning environment for all students. The emphasis on positive behavioral expectations is founded in the philosophy that all students have the ability to reach their full potential as learners and individuals. Our "Three B’s” focuses on three overarching principles: Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. Students are routinely rewarded for adhering to these fundamental behavioral expectations, and the overall school climate is one that represents the highest of standards.

Chippewa Middle School is a wonderful place for learning and development. We are proud of its traditions and accomplishments. Our website offers a wealth of information and excellent resources. Please take the time to visit it regularly.

Sincerely,

Dr. Leah Kimmelman, Principal
