Where personalized learning comes to life: At CICS West Belden, a Distinctive Schools campus in Chicago’s Belmont-Cragin neighborhood,  personalized learning is top of mind for teachers and administrators.

Christy Krier quote about Prodigy

In early March 2020, members of Prodigy’s team visited Chicago to meet with teachers across four campuses from Distinctive Schools, the non-profit organization that manages West Belden.

They saw firsthand how teachers used Prodigy to meet math students' individual learning needs across a diverse student population, including both advanced and English Language Learners (ELLs).

Prodigy’s platform aligns with West Belden’s goal of providing adaptive learning to every student. “Students deserve to go deeper in places where they’re ready or perhaps revisit skills that are specific to them as areas of growth,” says Colleen. “That opportunity to move at their own pace is something that is really important to us.”
