CICS Irving Park strives to personalize learning for each individual student by blending high-quality instruction, best teaching practices and proven ed-tech tools. A strong school culture and partnerships with families and the community ensure that every student's individual academic and social needs are met.

CICS Irving Park is passionately committed to collaborating with families and the community to create a school that fosters the academic and personal growth of every student. Every minute, every day, the Irving Park team works together to personalize learning through strong relationships, best teaching practices, and modern technology - to inspire and prepare students for their future.


CICS Irving Park's vision is to close the achievement gap by increasing the number of high achieving charter schools and consequently the opportunities for low-income children to succeed in school, in college, and in life. We rely on proven strategies and state-of-the-art technology to create rich learning environments for students and teachers, while making effective use of available resources.

Understanding Outcomes

  • The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) measures the percent of individual students
    meeting and/or exceeding set growth targets based on normative data.
    • NWEA measures of 50-70% of students meeting their individual growth targets are considered above average
    • NWEA measures greater than 70% of students meeting their individual growth target are considered exemplary
  • Growth index measures the amount of points on NWEA’s scale in which a student or group
    is above or below typical growth.
