Burnham School History:

Burnham School, named in honor of Chicago architect Daniel H. Burnham, was originally built in 1911 during a period of substantial growth in the town of Cicero. In 1905, Western Electric opened a new factory named Hawthorne Works attracting over 40,000 employees from around the world. In 1974, the Cicero School Board expanded Burnham School to better serve more students in the growing community. More recently, the School Board upgraded the building to support digital presentation boards in the classrooms and the ever-growing number of student computers. Burnham Elementary School is now a world-class educational facility serving over 1,100 students.
