National Teachers Academy Officially to be Converted to Neighborhood High School

Pazzo's Open at 825 S. State

This article has 1 other Chicago location (Show)

In October, protesters gathered outside Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s house, voicing their opposition to the plan to close the school, located at 55 W. Cermak Road. Protesters have said the decision to convert NTA is “the definition of neocolonialism.”

    National Teachers Academy Officially to be Converted to Neighborhood High School
    In case you missed it last week, looks like National Teachers Academy is definitely being converted into a neighborhood highschool (via Sun-Times): An outcry from parents - and the highest possible academic rating- could not save the National Teachers Academy from being closed in favor of a new neighborhood high school serving parts of the South Loop, Bronzeville, Bridgeport and Chinatown.

    This old Gazette article has listed Jones College Prep CTE neighborhood school boundaries. It looks like it would include South Loop School Area. If this is the case. Then I suspect your school is really being shuttered to take the Regional Gifted Center. CPS has specified that this program would be given to South Loop School.
