North Chicago School District 187


The North Chicago School District 187 consists of 8 schools, including 6 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school. The district serves a diverse student population with high levels of economic disadvantage, as evidenced by the large percentages of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch across the schools.

Within the district, a few schools stand out. The LEARN Charter School 6 N Chicago Campus and LEARN 10 Charter School outperform the district and state averages on academic assessments, particularly in the upper grades. The Green Bay Early Childhood Center also stands out with the lowest student-teacher ratio among the elementary schools. In contrast, the district as a whole is struggling, with most schools ranking in the bottom quartile of Illinois schools.

Chronic absenteeism is a significant issue across the district, ranging from 18.2% at LEARN Charter School 6 N Chicago Campus to 63.4% at North Chicago Community High School. This high level of chronic absenteeism likely contributes to the overall low academic performance. Additionally, the wide range in spending per student, from $13,673 at LEARN Charter School 6 N Chicago Campus to $27,699 at Green Bay Early Childhood Center, raises questions about the efficient allocation of resources and the potential impact of funding on student outcomes.
