Less Than 25 Percent Of Chicago Kids Go To 'Neighborhood High Schools'

West Town's Wells High School, 936 N. Ashland Ave., has a neighborhood enrollment rate of 7.1 percent — and the principal points to the prevalence of charter schools as the main factor for that miniscule number.

This article has 7 other Chicago locations (Show)

Paul Robeson High School, at 6835 S. Normal Blvd. has just 86 of 2,323 eligible area children this year. That neighborhood enrollment rate...

...the second lowest in the city. (Hirsch Metropolitan High School, a couple miles away at 7740 S. Ingleside Ave. in Greater Grand Crossing, was the lowest at 3.4 percent...

West Englewood resident Carol Stewart sent her 14-year-old son Demetrius to Miles Davis Magnet Academy, a magnet school without neighborhood boundaries on 67th and Paulina.

Demetrius skipped his neighborhood elementary school, Randolph, at 7316 S. Hoyne Ave., which has a 53.4 percent neighborhood enrollment rate. (Citywide, nearly 60 percent of students go to their neighborhood elementary schools, compared to 71.5 percent 10 years ago.)

Nor will he enroll at Harper High School, 6520 S. Wood St., which has a 9.8 percent neighborhood enrollment rate. The school received the second lowest academic ranking from CPS and has a "very weak" safety rating.

Instead, Demetrius will attend Urban Prep Academy's Englewood Campus, a charter high school at 6201 S. Stewart Ave., like his older brother.

In addition to the 7.1 percent neighborhood enrollment rate at Wells High School, Roberto Clemente High School at 1140 N. Western Avenue in nearby Humboldt Park has a neighborhood enrollment rate of 10.6 percent.

    Less Than 25 Percent Of Chicago Kids Go To 'Neighborhood High Schools'
    CHICAGO - If the neighborhood high school in Chicago isn't dead, it's on life-support. Citywide, less than 1 out of 4 students attend their neighborhood high school, new data obtained by DNAinfo shows. At some high schools, less than 4 percent of students attend even though the schools are supposed to serve students closest to where they live.

US Mail from 2016? Anyone else?

Just wondering if anyone else in the 60622 area received a bunch (29 pieces) of US mail dated between July and August of 2016 on Saturday. I'm not sure if it is from a Post Office mess-up or if a neighbor who received it incorrectly finally got around to delivering it.......................

  • JeannyB Old Apartment renovator, architect,

    I'm in 60622 as well....we have not experienced this, this year, but in the past there has been a lot of problems with mail in Chicago all over the city. YOu can google the history. Satchels of mail found under viaducts, or in a mail carriers attic...the list goes on...

    I'm in 60622 as well....we have not experienced this, this year, but in the past there has been a lot of problems with mail in Chicago all over the city. YOu can google the history. Satchels of mail found under viaducts, or in a mail carriers attic...the list goes on and on. It's improved greatly since the 90's but we were forced to put in a mail slot instead of using our mailboxes and a carrier key, because it kept getting lost by the carrier and we didn't even know until no one got any mail for a week. Then someone would have to stay home to co-ordinate a meeting with the carrier for a new entry key. After this happened a few times, we just installed a mail slot, and a note to throw packages that don't fit into it, over the locked fence. This has worked out to everyone's advantage for years. Anyone who has a problem with it can get a private mailbox and go pick up their parcels there. At least no one can steal our mail...and no one is missing mail.

  • This used to happen to me all the time when I lived in Wicker Park ... not that many tho! My mom once sent me a birthday card with a gift card in it that showed up 6 months after she mailed it, and it looked like the thing had been mangled nearly beyond recognition ...
