End of a Popular High School Era Paves Way for New Education

The Queen of Peace High School building in Burbank has begun to be torn down this past Monday, October 14. Demolition of the building that for 55 years educated young women in the southwest suburbs will make way for a state-of-the-art special education facility. The Catholic high school for girls closed at the end of 2017.


AERO Special Education Cooperative purchased the 13-acre property, including the Queen of Peace building, from the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters for $13.2 million in 2018. The cooperative has provided special education services since 1963 to students from 11 member public school districts in the southwest suburbs, encompassing Argo, Evergreen Park, Reavis and Oak Lawn.
