About Perspectives Middle Academy
Perspectives Charter Schools was founded in 1997 by two public school teachers who believe in quality education as the great equalizer. One of the first charter schools in Illinois, Perspectives has grown to include five high-quality, open enrollment public schools serving grades six through twelve in the Chicago communities of Auburn Gresham, Grand Boulevard and the South Loop. Perspectives is committed to providing top quality education in urban public schools. Our goal is to ensure that our students graduate from Perspectives prepared to succeed in college and in life.
Perspectives Middle Academy opened in 2006 and occupies the first floor of our three-school Calumet Campus at 81st and May in Auburn Gresham. Serving 384 students, Perspectives Middle Academy is modeled on the successes of Perspectives' original middle school, where our students are outperforming their peers at most Chicago Public Schools and other local charter schools, according to ISAT scores, after just three years with us. These early successes provide a compelling reason to enroll your student in Perspectives in sixth grade. At Perspectives, we can transform what an urban education looks like for our students.
Perspectives Middle Academy is led by Principal Tamara Davis and a faculty devoted to making College for Certain for every one of the students they serve. For more information about this school and to tour our campus, please call 773-358-6300.
