With an average of 350 students in each graduating class, Lake View High School is large enough to offer academic courses that suit nearly any student interest, yet small enough to provide each student with a sense of belonging.
At Lake View, we provide a full continuum of individualized educational programming and services to meet the needs of our diverse learners. Our diverse learner team works cooperatively with families, students, community, colleagues, and other professionals in order to promote each student’s success and well-being during and after high school.
We offer dozens of Honors courses and Advanced Placement/Dual-Credit courses from freshman through senior year, providing students with the advanced-level curriculum that college admissions officers are seeking.
49% of this year's students are taking at least one AP course.
In 2019 LVHS became one of only 21 CPS high schools to offer the uniquely rigorous AP Capstone program. The two-year program goes beyond exams and singular subject-matter content in order to develop students’ skills in research, analysis, evidence-based arguments, collaboration, writing, and presenting.
