Pulaski International School of Chicago is home to one of the city’s three RGC-ELL.

This program is designed to give greater academic equity and opportunity to our students that are gifted learners and high achievers who also speak Spanish as their primary home language. 

The program emphasizes critical thinking, ethical reasoning, real world problem solving, and creativity. Students develop these skills through strategies designed for advanced learners as well as projects that are driven by students’ interests. Students thrive on an accelerated curriculum, and develop a lifelong love of learning.

Pulaski’s K-8 RGC-ELL offers:

  • Accelerated instruction in math and literacy
  • An enriched and culturally inclusive curriculum in literacy, science, and social science
  • Content instruction in the student’s primary language, Spanish
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, grades pre-K to 8th
  • Free busing for qualifying students
