About North Chicago

The military families bring many of the world’s affairs close to our students, parents, staff, and community.

Due to cuts in school funding in North Chicago,  Reading Power is currently the only one-to-one literacy intervention available for students in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first, and second grade.
Both elementary schools in the district are on the state academic warning list for having an inadequate number of students achieving grade-appropriate scores on state standardized tests in 2011-12. The graduation rate at North Chicago High School is 51%.
