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.

Support FOA with "Dine out for Agassiz at Wishbone" on March 22 from 5pm - 8:30pm.  

Our Promise

Our promise is to provide a culture of academic excellence, foster a rigorous and nurturing learning environment, and instill within students a love of learning by identifying their positive distinctions, whether academic, artistic, or athletic, thus empowering them to be responsible, contributing members of a global community.
