Our Story

NPES was founded in 1980 by a group of parents in the North Park neighborhood to create an affordable alternative to the Chicago Public Schools. Many of the school's founding members were educators, dedicated to providing a well-rounded curriculum.

NPES purchased our current building at 2017 W. Montrose in 1999, which enabled the school to grow to its current size of 225 students. In 1999, the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) granted NPES full accreditation, which the school continues to maintain.
