Some High Schools Serving Uptown To Have New School Hours This Year

CPS announced a cost-cutting move that involves new start times for some of its schools, primarily high schools, something to do with transportation costs being streamlined by staggered start times. None of the local elementary schools are affected, but some of the high schools that serve Uptown residents will have new hours:
  • Uplift, changing from 8:30am-3:45pm to new hours: 9am-4:15pm
  • Amundsen, changing from 7:45am-3pm to new hours: 9am-4:15pm
  • Lake View, changing from 8:15am-3:45pm to new hours: 9am-4:12pm
You can see all the schools with time changes here.


  1. I'd be really happy about this if I were a high school student.

  2. Interesting fact - adolescent sleep patterns skew towards a later wake up time. A later school start time has been proven to boost academic performance.
