Chicago School GPS was founded by three Chicago moms who believe that the culture, opportunities and unique setting of Chicago makes it ideal for families, and that academically challenging, emotionally nourishing and culturally diverse options for education are available. Chicago School GPS understands that the search for the right high school can seem overwhelming. Their research covers neighborhood public schools, selective enrollment, magnets, charters, parochial and private schools.
