Despite a belief that Catholic elementary schools have inadequate resources for modern learning and cannot cater to children with special learning needs, the School of Saints Faith, Hope and Charity in Winnetka is just one of several parochial schools across the country working hard to change that stereotype.
Due to strong efforts from FHC to serve as a local role model for inclusion in education for students of all abilities, FHC Principal Katie Carden received the Dandy Award from the National Catholic Board on Full Inclusion this past November.
