The Elementary and High School Directories are just two of the many resources created by CPS to assist parents and students as they make decisions regarding which CPS school they are interested in attending. In addition to viewing the publication online, CPS recommends that parents also utilize our CPS.edu "Find a School" function, which allows you to find schools based on type, size, zone and grade level. See below for instructions on how to access this function.
2011-2012 CPS High School Directory
In a District with more than 100,000 high school students and more than 100 high schools, it can be difficult to find the school or program within a school that fits your child's needs. This directory is full of information about every Chicago public high school. Each school profile includes information about a school's academic standing, graduation rate, mission, extracurricular activities, supports and resources for students and parents, specialty programs and much more. The High School Application Procedures can be used as a guide on how to enroll in a high school and any specialty program within a school.
