With four classes a week, the Emerging Leaders in School program serves 120 students a year at Carl Von Linne.
Other enrichment options at the school include Old Town School of Music, Joffrey Ballet, & the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Middle-school students get to step outside of the classroom with our community garden space.
Participating students learn leadership through ecology: growing cycles, plant basics, growing their own plants, & helping plant in the outside garden space.
