Chicago Public Schools

Mission: We offer a high quality world-class education for the 21st century. Our mission is to ensure that every child is on track to graduate prepared for success in college, work and life.

One of the top priorities in the Chicago Public Schools and the City of Chicago is to provide unique learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. To accomplish that goal, CPS and the City of Chicago are always working together to develop new initiatives and programs that will help our students move to the next level of their education.
