Perspectives operates five open enrollment public schools serving 2,300 students in grades six through twelve in the communities of Auburn Gresham, Grand Boulevard and the South Loop. Committed to providing access to top quality public school education in Chicago's under-served communities, our goal is to ensure that all Perspectives students graduate from our schools prepared to succeed in college, and in life. Despite the fact that many of our students come to Perspectives well below their grade level, last year 97 percent of our graduates were accepted to college!
To cultivate this level of success we teach a rigorous college prep curriculum in a safe, secure environment. We involve parents in their children's education with regularly scheduled mandatory conferences and participation in school events. We provide extended day learning by offering numerous after school classes, clubs and participation in any of 45 sports teams. Our commitment to student achievement extends to our provision of an intensive college counseling program with the remarkable low ratio of one counselor to 100 students.
