Welcome to Chicago School GPS

There is no greater concern to parents than,
“How do I secure the best education possible for my kids?”

We can help you navigate the confusing school search process to find the best suited public and/or private schools in the Chicago area for your child.  From pre-school through high school and beyond, school choices in Chicago are an ever-changing landscape and we continually explore all options to guide you to your school destination.  Whether you are seeking general, gifted or special needs options, use the expertise and experience of Chicago School GPS to make your school search journey an easier one.

Chicago School GPS grew out of the collective experiences of 3 Chicago moms who, after wading into the waters of the increasingly confusing and confounding school search process, successfully arrived at our school destinations.  Over the years, we felt that there had to be a “better way”, and we felt that our experience in navigating the overwhelming private and public school search could be shared with other Chicago families.
