Rudyard Kipling Elementary School

Moving Forward

Kipling Elementary School is a Chicago Public School educating students from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Rudyard Kipling Elementary School was erected in 1961 as a K-6 school in a new growing community called Greenview. The Greenview community is a subdivision of the greater Washington Heights area on the southside of Chicago. The school's location at 9351 South Lowe Avenue currently serves students living in the boundaries established in 1961. 

In September of 1961, the enrollment was 817 students. By 1966, membership had grown to 1,333 students requiring the erection of mobile classrooms on site. In 1969, Medgar Evers School opened and provided relief reducing the membership by 50%. The school currently serves approximately 440 regular and special education students.

“A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark”

My name is Kaitlyn Doherty & I am excited to have joined the Kipling Tigers Team for the 2018-2019 school year! This school year begins my 6th year teaching in CPS, and my 4th year teaching Diverse Learners. In working closely with your middle schooler, I will assist him/her in accelerating their academic career, and instilling life-long learning skills along the way. I will assist your child in an Inclusion setting (within general education classrooms) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:45am-2:45pm and Fridays, 7:45am-11:20am.
