Mary Lyon School wants each student to be developed as a whole child in preparation for college, their future career paths, and 21st century demands. As a school community we work together to motivate our students. At Mary Lyon, we want our students to have the opportunity to dig deeper into subjects that interest them, develop advanced research and communication skills, and learn to tap their creative, problem-solving, and analytical potential while collaborating with others. Mary Lyon Faculty and Staff strive each day to give our children access to rigorous grade-level work. At Mary Lyon our goal is to build student confidence and help them learn the essential time management and study skills needed to be prepared for college and career success.
Our children inspire our faculty, staff, and community every day.  Our enrichment offerings of orchestra, band, athletics, art, gardening, computers, PATHS, and library help to develop the whole child. Mary Lyon students are proud to be “The Lions!” and believe in our R. O. A. R. S.   (Being Respectful, Organized, Accountable, Responsible, and Safe).  Mary Lyon is proud to be a CPS Network 3 School.
