Who We Are By The Numbers

Chicago Public School students are achieving at record levels. By any measure and subgroup, the nearly 400,000 students that we serve are growing academically and this includes your child. In order to en-sure that all students continue to progress, CPS will invest in additional evidence-based supports and strategies.

You name the subgroup, and kids in Chicago are doing substantially better than other Illinois kids outside the city.
