Alcott to add High School
It’s been officially announced… Alcott will be adding high school classes starting in 2009. Parents there worked with the principal and CPS – pushing, proposing, and I’m sure jumping through hoops to get this going. The school will be a college-prep high school with a Humanities focus.
They’ll take up to 150 kids per grade. Alcott kids get first priority, then there will a combo of a neighborhood lottery and city lottery. Read more on the school’s web site:
Its encouraging to see that CPS is starting to consider more creative options for high schools. As we elementary parents are well aware, that will be our next frontier of angst so lucky for us we have some parents ahead of us paving the way.
