School Information

We enroll students from kindergarten through grade five who live in the southwest section of Oak Forest and parts of northern Tinley Park.

Our curriculum is guided by the State of Illinois Goals for Learning along with those adopted locally by our Board of Education. A primary means of organizing efforts for the accomplishment of school goals is through our School Improvement Planning Team. 

Our students maintain a fine tradition of academic achievement fostered by teaching excellence and supportive parents. Our PTA provides a structure for involvement and many enrichment activities. 

Fierke Education Center opened in 1972 and is named after Walter F. Fierke, former superintendent (1941-1972) of Community Consolidated School District 146. 

Fierke Education Center’s Mission is to provide our students with a safe, nurturing environment and purposeful, challenging curriculum…so they attain academic excellence and demonstrate exemplary personal character.
