Dear Neighbors, 

As the school year wraps up, congratulations to all the graduates of our schools in the 43rd Ward  - from kindergarteners and 8th graders to high school students. But I'd like to send a special recognition to our neighborhood high school - Lincoln Park High.

The 2014 - 2015 school year was exciting and successful for Lincoln Park High School. Under the leadership of Principal Michael Boraz, the school was rated the most challenging school in Chicago and the third most challenging high school in Illinois. 

LPHS's Wall-to-Wall International Baccalaureate program is the most comprehensive in the United States. Plus, over  850 students took more than 1600 AP exams, an increase in 200 exams from last year. 

Perhaps most notable, the total college scholarship dollars for this year's graduating class is more than $16 million, a historic high for the school. 

Mayor Emanuel honored LPHS by delivering its commencement address this year, stating, " If every child in the City of Chicago accomplishes what all of you have accomplished today, there is no challenge we cannot address and no opportunity we cannot seize as a city."

We  are incredibly excited about the advancements Lincoln Park High School has made and, of course, the achievements of its students. We look forward to working closely with Principal Boraz and local parents to  support Lincoln Park High School. If you'd like to learn more about the school, click here.

Congratulations to the Class of 2015!
