A new selective enrollment high school named after President Barack Obama will be built near the former site of the Cabrini-Green public housing complex, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced today.
The new high school, near the intersection of Division and Halsted streets, will open in fall 2017 with a freshman class of 300 students, and will add more students in following years, according to a release from the mayor’s office.
The school will ultimately have 1,200 students, the release said.
About 70 percent of the seats will be available to students through the selective enrollment process. The school will establish a neighborhood preference to fill the remaining seats, according to the release.
