Perspectives Charter Schools Chicago
Perspectives Charter Schools manages 5 open enrollment, tuition-free public schools serving 2,300 students in grades 6-12 in the communities of Auburn Gresham, Grand Boulevard and the South Loop. We are 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 is a place where Chicago public school students learn lifelong lessons that put them on a path to success. In 2011, 97 percent of our high school graduates were accepted to college. This included two graduating classes from our new schools in Auburn Gresham, where we effectively doubled the graduation rate for neighborhood students in just 4 years.
Perspectives is funded primarily through government sources, including Chicago Public Schools. We also receive generous support from corporations, foundations and individual donors who believe in the value of a Perspectives education.
