Lincoln Park High School  Ranked as the City's Most Challenging School

T he Washington Post recently ranked Lincoln Park High School as one of the country's most challenging high schools .  In fact,  LPHS is rated as the most challenging high school in Chicago, and third most challenging in Illinois. 

This past year, under Principal Mike Boraz' leadership, nearly 70-percent of LPHS graduates passed at least one college-level test. This is the result of  the  adoption of  the "wall-to-wall" International Baccalaureate program, which offers  any student the opportunity to take IB and AP courses. 

We're very proud to have lobbied for the wall-to-wall IB program, which began in 2012.

Congratulations to Principal Boraz and the entire faculty of Lincoln Park High School for this tremendous achievement. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the school to ensure it has the resources it needs to offer the highest-quality education. 

Way to go, LPHS!
