CPS released its annual comprehensive school quality ratings on Thursday, October 6. To search for your child’s school, click on “Schools” at the top of the page and then click on “School Profiles” and type in the school’s name. You’ll have access to reports that provide a fairly comprehensive overview of how well the school is educating its students.
The reports outline where each school is strongest and each is weakest. They also provide information on poverty rates, English proficiency, overall academic progress, and other important factors affecting our neighborhood schools.
Under the CPS system, schools are ranked highest to lowest as follows:
Level 1+, Level 1, Level 2+, Level 2, and Level 3.
These reports may prove useful in the debate about funding our schools, especially in view of the teachers’ strike that may occur next week.
