Program Application Requirements

Math/Science

Deadline:  12/22/2017
Grades Served: K-8
Application Requirements
None
Selections
Students must submit a Standard Elementary Schools application between October and December. Applicants are selected by computerized lottery. Priority is given to applicants with a sibling who is currently enrolled in the school in grade K-7, and who will remain enrolled in the school for the coming school year. After siblings are accommodated, 40% of remaining seats for the entry-grade level are allocated for applicants who live within a 1.5 mile radius of the school, and remaining entry-grade level seats are evenly distributed among the four socio-economic tiers. For all grades other than the entry-grade level, seats remaining after siblings are accommodated are filled through a general computerized lottery.
How to Apply
Students can apply online or via paper Standard Elementary Schools application by visiting go.cps.edu.

Selections
Students are selected based on their admissions exam score. At the entry-level grade, the first 30 percent of the seats are filled by rank ordering the exam scores. The remaining seats at the entry-level grade are equally distributed among the four tiers, and are filled in rank order by the top-scoring students in each tier. For all grades above the entry-level grades, seats are filled by the top-scoring students in rank order. There is no sibling preference.
