Chicago area high schools typically review students' information and scores from 7th grade, so our teachers encourage students to do their best work throughout the year.
Each family receives a private consultation with Mrs. Runge, who has nearly 20 years of experience navigating the high school process with families. She discusses the various high school options and admissions criteria with each family and remains in frequent communication with families throughout the year.
