We are happy to announce that, for the third year in a row, Amundsen High School has been rated a Level 1+ high school by the Chicago Public Schools. Amundsen is one of only a small number of neighborhood high schools to have achieved this rating, and the only one to have achieved it after being in a probationary status. We are so very proud of our students, and we thank and congratulate all of the members of the Amundsen family who have contributed to this achievement. We could not have done it without you! #3peat #NeighborhoodHS #Viking_Pride
