At Cárdenas we are passionate about education, caring for others, and have high expectations for all.

Welcome to Lázaro Cárdenas School!  We are located in the vibrant Little Village neighborhood in the South Lawndale community of Chicago’s west side.  We are a level 1+ school that serves students in PreK through 8th grade.


Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and Dr. Janice Jackson held a press conference at Cárdenas School on July 6.  In addition to meeting members of the school community, they also observed our students putting their technology skills to work.
