Morgan Park High School, a neighborhood school with a  population of approximately 1500 seventh through twelfth grade students and 120 faculty is academically, culturally, and economically diverse.
All students in the MP attendance area are automatically enrolled in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. This allows students the opportunity to have access to the IB Diploma Programme. In addition to students who live in our attendance area, Morgan Park admits students through several programs:  the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programmes and the World Language and International Studies Program, all of which admit students who meet rigorous program requirements.

Besides a wide array of extra-curricular activities, Morgan Park currently offers Advanced Placement English Literature and Advanced Placement Human Geography as well as Dual Credit English Composition, Pre Calculus, Applied Mathematics, and Law, providing students college-level instruction, the opportunity to earn college credit, and the ability to stand out in the college application process.  AP offerings are expanded in response to AP Potential generated by PSAT scores.
