Catalyst receives highest rating on 5Essentials survey!

We are excited to share with you that Catalyst Schools received the HIGHEST POSSIBLE RATING on the critical 5Essentials My School, My Voice survey conducted by the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research! One of our schools, Catalyst-Maria High School, earned the fourth highest score of all high schools in Chicago - including all charter, traditional and selective enrollment schools!

The survey asks scholars, teachers, and parents questions on the five essential components that drive school success: Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction. Schools that score strong on the 5Essentials are ten times more likely to improve student learning than schools that score weak on the 5Essentials.

Congratulations to our staff, scholars, and school communities on this incredible achievement!
