WELCOMING COHORT TWO GRANTEES AND
EXPANDING SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

 

MEET COHORT 2
 




The New Schools for Chicago team is excited to welcome the leaders of Madison ElementaryFoundations College PrepCICS ChicagoQuest, and Northwest Middle School to the second cohort of our School Improvement Grant Program. 

Today, 172 of Chicago’s 652 public schools fall into the mid-performing range in school quality—and are rated as Level 2 or 2+ learning environments, serving roughly 75,000 students. These schools do many things right and, with the right supports, could provide students with a world-class learning experience that prepares them for success. NSC partners with these schools and school leaders to help transform them into great schools and, while doing so, create a replicable model of improvement for the district and other urban districts nationwide. 

New for cohort two, we've added an additional support level to our School Improvement Grant initiative, enabling us to support more schools and students.

Sariah's Story

In our third installment of Great Schools Matter, Sariah and her family share their experience transitioning from a low-performing to a high-performing Chicago public school. Sariah and her parents found a consistent Level 1+ school for her to transfer to in 8th grade. Since changing schools, Sariah's grades and engagement in school have improved. Her new high-quality school supports and challenges her to reach her academic potential.

Our vision is to ensure that every child in Chicago has access to a high-quality education. Visit our website to learn more about our mission and work.
