5Essentials School Reports

Learn how schools in CPS perform on the five factors that matter most for student learning


The 5Essentials were developed by the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research at the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute, in partnership with Chicago Public Schools.

The 5Essentials Reports for CPS draw from the 2016 My Voice, My School Student and Teacher Surveys administered in CPS from January-March 2016. Parent survey results will be released by CPS and will not be included on this site.
