Lace Elementary School

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Even Darien residents without children know Lace Elementary for its "green" roof, the first in DuPage County. The three-year-old roof, which replaces shingles with seeds that blossom into an array of plants and flowers, is just one way that Lace distinguishes itself as a forward-thinking school. Chalk dust is a thing of the past as each classroom is equipped with a smart board -- a touch screen similar to a giant, projectable iPad -- that replaces the traditional blackboard. Document cameras fill the place of overhead projectors, making blurry, marker-scrawled transparencies a thing of the past.</p>
<p>But even with all the 21st Century technology, what really makes Lace special are the people in its classrooms. "We have wonderful kids and an outstanding, child-centered staff who go the extra mile," Principal Marty Casey says. "You sense right away the climate is very positive."</p> <p>The school educates students grades 3-5, with seven class sections for each grade. There is a discovery room for gifted students, classes for students who speak English as a second language and a resource room for special education.</p>
