Educating Children From The Inside Out

Since 2004, Namaste Charter School has been a model for the integration of health and wellness programming in school to ensure students’ lasting physical and social-emotional health parallel to high academic achievement. Namaste was purposefully designed in response to research on learning and promotes equity as a school that educates the whole child.

Dear Stakeholders,

Namaste Charter School has served students from the McKinley Park and its surrounding neighborhoods for over 20 years. It remains committed to providing all our students with a holistic educational model that prioritizes health and wellness and a rigorous academic instructional model—at the same time, promoting the full development of bilingualism and biliteracy in our Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program.

Our celebrations this year include:

  • Academic achievement increased in reading by 13% and math by 7% during the 22/23SY NWEA Assessment.
  • 85% of 5th Graders and 100% of 8th Graders to be on the Pathway to the Seal of Biliteracy in SY22-23. Compared to 79% of 8th graders in CPS.
  • Four 8th-grade students were awarded the Daniel Murphy Scholarship to attend a private high school with 75% or more financial aid.
  • Achieving 93% of a Healthy CPS Status compared to 75% for district schools.
  • After-school offerings included STEAM programming through the YMCA, middle school sports, tutoring, and ESL classes.

At Namaste Charter Scool, we look forward to continuing to uphold our commitment to our Pillars:

  • Nutrition, Health and Wellness
  • Balance Learning
  • Language and Culture
  • Collaborative Practice

We appreciate your partnership and look forward to elevating our programming and educating children from the inside out for the next twenty years!
