Chicago International Charter School Celebrates School Quality Improvements


Last week, Chicago Public Schools released school performance results – School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP) – from the 2015-2016 school year. CICS has a lot to celebrate and more work to do. We are proud to announce our third consecutive year of improvement across the network, with six of our campuses rated in the top two performance categories of SQRP. These achievements are the results of the talented and committed teachers, leaders, and operators working tirelessly for our students.

Even as we celebrate the accomplishments of our educators, we also recognize a huge opportunity to continue to improve. Every school in the CICS network has the potential to be even better. Our goal is to achieve Level 1+ at all of our campuses in the future. We are committed to achieving the highest level of quality at every campus because our students deserve it.

Every day we see incredible examples of teaching and learning in our CICS classrooms, and the SQRP calculation can only capture a small slice of the great work going on in our schools. But SQRP reflects that CICS schools continue to grow and improve in preparing students for success in college, careers, and life.  

Below is our list of Level 1+ and Level 1 schools. Congratulations to these schools and to the teachers, students, and staff of all CICS schools for their work in the 2015-2016 school year!
