CHICAGO (CBS) — The New Year will bring a unique new high school to Chicago.
WBBM’s Regine Schlesinger reports, when it opens next fall, Wolcott School – located at 524 N. Wolcott Av., just northwest of the Loop – will be the first Chicago high school specifically for college-bound students with learning differences.
The head of the school is former Deerfield High School special education chair Miriam Pike, who doesn’t use the old term of learning disabilities.
“We aren’t viewing students in terms of a disability, or an incapacity. We’re looking at our students through their strengths,” she said.
