CPS announces plans for new $75M Englewood High School

By Matt Masterson, WTTW/Chicago Tonight

Chicago Public Schools says it’s making its most significant investment in the rising Englewood neighborhood in decades, announcing plans Friday to construct a “state-of-the-art” high school that will take in students from four other area schools the district plans to shutter.

CPS CEO Forrest Claypool said Friday the district will spend $75 million to build the yet-to-be-named neighborhood high school on the site of the existing Robeson High School.

“Englewood students are making incredible progress, especially in the neighborhood elementary schools,” Claypool said, “and these students have nothing but potential and they deserve a high-quality high school that will give them a good reason to stay in their neighborhood.”
