Chicago International Charter School partners with School Management Organizations (SMOs) to facilitate the day-to-day operations at CICS campuses. The SMOs hire staff and faculty, provide professional development services, and manage the schools for performance results. While the SMO runs the school, the campus director and teachers are free to focus on the students and build the school culture.

We celebrate the innovations and differences in approaches to teaching and learning that come with each School Management Organization and campus. We are committed to putting children first, operating our campuses with the firm belief that all children can learn and deserve access to a great school.
