Looking for good school district and good allergist

Hi everyone, I am new to this group. My son has been diagnosed with a peanut allergy. It has been really scary so far. We are moving to the west suburbs of Chicago and are looking for a new allergist and a new school district. Can anyone please make some recommendations on any schools that are either peanut free or great at supporting a safe environment for a child allergic to peanuts (near western suburbs, northwest suburbs, or southwest suburbs of Chicago).

Also, does anyone have an allergist who specializes in food allergies or is really in-tune with food allergies. Our old allergist told us our son was allergic, via scratch test and was very vague at how to handle it.

Thank you!
