Academically Rigorous

We are a CPS Neighborhood and Magnet Cluster School with a Fine and Performing Arts Focus.

The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) officially certified Agassiz in the Middle Years Program (MYP) in the Spring of 2017.  Agassiz offers the MYP program to all students in 6th through 8th grade.  Agassiz is pleased to announce that the school will begin the three year process to become authorized in the Primary Years Program (PYP) to students in grades Pre-K through 5.

Artistically Rich

In 1999, Agassiz became a Fine and Performing Arts Magnet Cluster Program.

Culturally Diverse

Now with over 500 students being served in Pre-K through eighth grade, Agassiz continues to be culturally and demographically diverse.
