Spotlight School: Thomas Kelly College Preparatory

Kelly College Prep was chosen as the GRAD Partnership’s third spotlight school for its efforts to increase student connectedness, providing multiple opportunities for students to weigh in on how they are learning and what they need. As one of the largest schools in Chicago, Kelly College Prep reflects the economic, linguistic, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the city’s southwest side. Forty percent of Kelly students are bi- or multi-lingual and 93% are part of low-income families. 

At Kelly, we use students’ voices to select pathways and listen to what they’re saying is happening in the classroom to impact instruction. We talk to our kids.” – Kelly College Prep Principal Raul Magdaleno
