St. Hubert School is an Archdiocese of Chicago pre-K through grade eight elementary school in the northwest suburb of Hoffman Estates, Illinois serving students from over ten surrounding zip codes.

The rigorous school curriculum, following the Common Core Standards, reflects efforts to meet the individual needs of all students. The Student Intervention Team (SIT) meets weekly to strategize and pool school resources to support both students and teachers. Educators consistently integrate technology through the use of document cameras, SMART boards, and iPads to enhance understanding of learning targets. Integration of hands-on inquiry-based learning is emphasized to prepare students to be diligent citizens in society. For example, junior high students participated in eCybermission, an online national STEM competition hosted by the United States Army. Two teams won first and second place state-level recognition while identifying and solving a national or community problem. The school also received a 2014 Grant from Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems to further efforts with STEM education.

Yearly school traditions of Veterans’ Day assemblies and Grandparents’ Day celebrations bridge generations and emphasize the school’s commitment to support the surrounding community. The student council is a driving force in raising awareness of social issues, fundraising for those in need, and tutoring students in younger grades.

A wide range of extracurricular opportunities include an award-winning band program, athletics, Chess Scholars, Lego Robotics, and Young Rembrandts. The school community benefits from active parent participation in School Advisory Board, Family and School Association, and Development Core Team.
