Student Performance Update

Chicago International Charter School has made significant progress toward its goal of closing the achievement gap between the performance of our students and the performance of their more economically advantaged peers.

This is most evident in our students' performance on Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) testing. During the 2014-2015 school year, the average student who attended a CICS elementary campus was achieving at or above the national average as measured by the NWEA Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) on both growth and attainment measures.

NWEA Scores Showing Improved Growth

In the 2014-2015 school year, CICS increased the overall percentage of students meeting projected growth targets on the NWEA reading and math scale. NWEA data suggest 62% of students in reading and 71% of students in math have made their individual growth targets.

CICS High School Performance

Strong Graduation and College Enrollment Rates, Improving College Readiness Measures

In our high schools, each graduating class has been better positioned for future success. As of September 2015, 95% of the CICS Class of 2015 was accepted to college. This figure is an improvement on the previous year's rate of 93%, and an even greater achievement than 2013's rate of 88%.
