Transportation and Parking

School Bus Transportation

Under CPS policy, school bus service is available for students in kindergarten through 8th-grade who live between 1.5 and 6 miles from a magnet school. If you are unsure whether your child is eligible for bus service, please call the school. Bus service for IAMS students is provided by R&D Bus Service (773.854.2100). Bus service request forms are distributed in the spring for the following school year. Information regarding your child’s bus route will be sent to you by R&D Bus Service in August.

Information about CPS transportation is available online.

Transportation by Parent/Guardian

If you drive your child to school, please help by not bringing children too early or picking them up late; children are not permitted to be at school unsupervised.

IAMS Parking Garage

The parking garage on Addison Street is available for parent/guardian parking. Parking is free with ticket validation at the school (security desk Entrance #7). Note that ticket validation is only needed after the first 1/2 hour. Parking may not be available on Cubs game days or other special occasions for the parking company. On these days parents/guardians can find parking on the surrounding streets to the school, including Addison and Halsted.

PARENTS/GUARDIANS and VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PARK IN THE STAFF PARKING LOT. The lot is not open for parking during regular school hours. Cars parked improperly in the staff lot may be ticketed or towed.
