If you are in Chicago, CPS has changed quite a bit in the last couple years (from own experience). Having children myself, I have QUITE a bit of experience with the CPS system. I'd like to share my experience with you and discuss your various options. Call me.

Make it a GREAT day!

Hi Samson, This is the best website to use when researching schools in Illinois: http://iirc.niu.edu/

There are options to send your child to another school out of district, but please know that you'll usually incur higher costs in order to do so. Many times, private schools are a good option and they try to work with families on payments/ schedules if needed. Good luck!

CPS District 299 includes the entire city. Think as an agent you can offer a better option.

Hi Samson,

This property is located in Chicago Public School District 299
which includes public schools Nettelhorst Elementary School and Lake View High School. If you're thinking about private or religious schools there is generally no geographic limitation to as to where students can attend from. I hope this is helpful.

your searching for things on a web site that is made to be very surface of home buying.. I suggest you use an agents website that gives you all the information and in a more digestible format.. like mine or any of the agents who post here

There usually is an exception to the rule when it comes to kids attending a school outside of their boundaries. I'm only speaking from experience, being that there is a school right across the street from my residence and none ever my 4 children have ever attended. Just wasn't the school of choice that I wanted for my children. You have to contact the school principle or admissions counselor and if your child's grades are in high standards, they sometimes make an exception to allow a student in the school that lives outside of the area. Hope this helps! Have a great day!

You have to attend the school in the neighborhood boundaries. Try chicago public school website. I think it's cps.org
