Dec 14 – Deadline for both paper and online applications

When I first navigated public school choices 13 years ago, I toured several magnet schools, completing a separate application or each one. I dutifully checked the box for ethnicity, sex, and added a quick prayer before handing over the simple form to the school’s secretary, hoping it would find its way to the lottery box without getting lost, and that (should I be lucky enough to win), the mailman wouldn’t lose my letter of acceptance. I was unnerved!

Times have changed — now parents can apply online, prioritizing their choices, feeling confident that the system won’t lose their application and their opportunity for winning the lottery.

When I searched for schools, there weren’t the fantastic options for neighborhood schools that there are today. As a result, I’ve put together some searches for parents who are considering living in a Chicago Public Elementary District. This list is growing, so if you don’t see what you need, please call me.

Navigating school choices can be daunting – please let me know if you have friends who would like information on Chicago schools.

If they’d like to speak with a parent in an elementary or high school, I would be happy to put them in touch with those who can help provide more information.
