Percy L. Julian High School is one of nine high schools serving the Far South Side. Julian is a neighborhood school, however many students who do not live in attendance area enroll in the school to participate in the four Career Technical Education programs. Our commitment to graduate students who are prepared for postsecondary success is demonstrated by our low drop-out rate which was less than 3% in 2014-15, among the lowest in Chicago Public Schools, as well as the college enrollment and persistence rates.

Julian is rated strong in the arts. Recognitions have been received for the outstanding work of the Radio-TV Broadcasting Academy and Marching Band. The grade-level interdisciplinary service-learning program has received national recognition from the Education Commission of the States. The AVID (Advancement VIA Individual Determination) program has received national certification. Students have opportunities to participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities. The support and engagement of community partners, including alumni, working with the school is strong.
Academic Performance
School LevelLevel 2
This is the rating the school district gives to a school about how well they are performing. From highest performing to lowest performing, the possible levels are: Level 1+, Level 1, Level 2+, Level 2, and Level 3.
Freshman On Track94%
This is the percentage of the last 9th grade class that, based on their grades and attendance in 9th grade, is on track to graduate. Whether or not a student is on track during their freshman year is the biggest indicator of whether or not they will graduate from high school on time!
Average SAT Score792
The SAT is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions that students take during their 11th grade year. This piece of information averages together the scores of the last 11th grade class at a school. The CPS average is 951.
Graduation Rates74%
This is the percentage of a group of students at a school that graduated within five years. The average in CPS is 69.9%.
College Enrollment Rates47%
College Readiness5%
This is the percentage of students at a school that scored at least a 21 on the ACT, which demonstrates a higher level of readiness to take college level courses.
School Culture
Student Mobility20%
The percentage of students that transfer in or out of the school during the school year. A higher percentage means that there are more students coming and going. Though it doesn’t tell us why students are transferring in and out, we can imagine that it could feel a little unstable if this is a high percentage.
Student Attendance81%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
Teacher Attendance88%
This is the average daily attendance of teachers at the school – on average, what percent of all the teachers employed at the school are in attendance. As a student, it could be more challenging to make academic progress if you regularly have substitutes or don’t get to build a relationship with the teacher.

This is the average number of students that is in each classroom. Use your current class as a reference point. Are you comfortable learning and contributing in a class this big? Would you prefer a class that has fewer students or more students?

This tells us the total number of students that attend the school. Use your school as a reference point. Would you like a school that has fewer, more, or about the same number of students in your school?
