High School

Chicago Public Schools is home to more than 160 high schools that offer a wide variety of program options to meet the academic interests of students. We want all of our families to attend the school that is the best fit for their needs, so students can either attend the general education program of the neighborhood school within the attendance boundary of their primary home address or apply to attend any high school in the city that they are eligible for and that has available seats.
