Amundsen High School Home

A Message from the Principal Department

 
Wow! It’s been an exciting and eventful few years. As the principal of Amundsen High School since 2012, I have been fortunate to lead our neighborhood high school through a remarkable and exciting transformation that has earned our neighborhood high school a CPS “school quality rating” of Level 1+. We are proud to have led our students to this level of academic and post-secondary success while maintaining our focus on inclusivity and diversity. We are eager to share the great news about our improvements in all areas, spanning academics, athletics, student-life and university and not-for-profit partnerships. Our $30M+ capital improvement projects have been extensive. Future projects are still being planned. Once completed, they will further enhance our school-wide learning environment and physical setting for athletics and other extra-curricular activities.
 
The Viking Way, which fosters the development of Accountable, Honorable, and Scholarly graduates, is at the core of every student’s cultural and academic experiences. Our comprehensive course catalog and thriving student-life ensure that every student feels challenged and valued. Amundsen High School is a stand-out choice among both magnet and neighborhood options for many reasons, including the following: high performing International Baccalaureate Programme; “Wall-to-Wall” Middle Years Programme” for all students in 9th and 10th grades; competitive results in Academic Decathlon, Science Fair, Math Team, etc.; thriving and well-funded athletic and extra-curricular programs; safe environment; and, an unwavering commitment to providing every student an authentic college and career preparatory experience that meets their unique educational needs.
Choosing a high school is an exciting, important, and daunting decision, but the high school journey is an unparalleled learning experience for all students. We strive to create this personalized learning experience for all students and are committed to making all decisions based on the needs of our students, who are at the center of everything we do. 
 
Goooo Vikings!

Amundsen High School Rated Level 1+ Again!!!

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
