About Us


Enrico Tonti Elementary School was built in 1928 in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the southwest side of Chicago.  About a decade ago, we added a twelve-room annex and last year we added a 4 room modular building for our full day Kindergarten classes.  



At Tonti we have 40 classroom teachers, 5 special needs teachers, 15 bilingual Spanish speaking classroom teachers, and 13 classroom aides. As a community school, we offer Parent Training Classes in computers, literacy, nutrition, wellness, parenting, and GED classes as well as various other after school programs. Tonti's PTA , LSC, BAC, and PAC work together to fundraise to provide students with field trips and other incentives throughout the year.
