About VHS

Located in the vibrant Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago, Von Humboldt Elementary’s mission is to provide quality education, promote social justice, and serve the leaders of tomorrow. As one of over 600 Chicago Public Schools, Von Humboldt seeks to separate itself from other schools by means of community engagement, a multicultural approach, and providing a safe learning environment. By maintaining high expectations, we believe all students can reach their potential. Our dedicated staff work hard to ensure this happens.
