Muchin College rep, located in downtown Chicago, supports students in reaching their full potential inside and outside the classroom, and provides students with access to civic organizations, job shadowing and internship opportunities.

Muchin College Prep opened in August of 2009 on the 7th floor of a high-rise building downtown. We have consistently ranked among the top 10 highest performing non-selective high schools in Chicago. Our scholars come to Muchin from more than 50 zip codes across Chicago and commute primarily by public transportation to our downtown campus. In addition, our diverse staff represents every region in the US and eight countries outside the US, and includes 15+ year veterans, Ivy League graduates, and NCAA athletes. Our scholars engage in a rigorous curriculum that prepares them for success in college and beyond. In addition to our rigorous curriculum, we focus on character education. We leverage our unique location to provide a variety of opportunities for our scholars to interact with professionals through internships, youth employment, and enriching activities. Since opening, 100% of our scholars have been accepted to two- and four-year colleges and universities. Now in our ninth year of operation, our founding class has seen its first college graduates! We have more than 67% of our first-generation college scholars on track to graduate - outpacing the CPS college completion average.
Academic Performance
School LevelLevel 1+
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 Track90%
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 Score1,060
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 Rates92%
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 Rates92%
College Readiness61%
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 Mobility3%
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 Attendance95%
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 Attendance(Not Available)
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.
