All Children

Are Capable of Success...


Brian Piccolo Specialty School Vision

The vision of Piccolo Specialty School is to empower all students to become inquisitive learners in literacy, and mathematics and all other subject, giving them the skills to become productive citizens and leaders in the global society.


Brian Piccolo Specialty School Mission

Piccolo’s mission involves students, staff, parents and the community working together as partners to improve academic achievement in all areas with an emphasis on literacy. The entire school community will provide a safe nurturing learning environment that motivates all students, including students with special needs, to reach their highest potential through a combination of diverse and effective learning practices. These include professional development, parent trainings, partnerships, and other social resources that help to develop the whole child.


Community Parents, We Need You 

Here is a new opportunity to help other parents in your neighborhood as part of the Parent Leadership in Action (PLAN) component of the Governor’s Neighborhood Recovery Initiative (NRI), a comprehensive effort to reduce youth violence and increase adult engagement and leadership here in the Chicago area.  Nearly 1,000 Chicago-area parents will soon be doing parent-to-parent education and community outreach as members of PLAN.  They will be holding important dialogues about how we can “take back the village,” begin to recover from decades of violence and save our youth from the streets by surrounding them with caring adults.

If you have been “through the fire” in dealing with your own issues and have recently navigated the tricky waters and challenges of raising an adolescent (ages 12 to 17 within the last three years), PLAN training and membership may be for you!

 We now have several new openings for temporary, part-time PLAN Members (working evenings and weekends).  These paid positions would be a great way for you to help parents struggling to raise children in challenging environments and times and contribute to a unique effort dedicated to making our community stronger and better connected to resources.

PLAN offers a full training program to support you as an effective, “go-to” community resource for other parents in your neighborhood.  We provide you with leadership training, background on the project’s discussion (messages) areas, and training on violence prevention strategies and other protective factors.  If you are interested in joining the PLAN team, you are first required to attend an orientation session (see information below).
