Rodney D. Joslin Campus

Perspectives Rodney D. Joslin campus provides a holistic approach to education, combining relevant and rigorous college preparatory curriculum with strong social emotional learning to prepare our students for college and for life. Located in South Loop, Joslin serves a diverse group of students from across the city in grades 6-12.

Joslin utilizes the city and region as a classroom to provide our students with real world and experiential learning opportunities. Joslin’s vibrant, small-school learning environment allows students to build on their educational experience through internships and electives like art, fitness, humanities, and STEM courses as well as an accelerated pathway for high-achieving students. Students begin to visit college campuses as early as 6th grade, and Dual Enrollment is offered in partnership with City Colleges’. Home of NBA All-Star, Anthony Davis, students can also participate in over 50 after school programs and athletic teams. Joslin provides the foundation for developing ethical leaders prepared for the 21st century.

NOTICE TO PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES

Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the District must provide students with disabilities with appropriate special education and related services to address their educational needs. If your student receives related services from the District through their Individualized Education Program (“IEP”) document, such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, social work, nursing services, and speech and language therapy, you may request copies of related service logs developed and maintained by the District for your child. These related service logs include information regarding the type and duration of related services administered to your child.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s special education services, please contact Amy Gambrel agambrel@pcsedu.org 312-604-2200.
