Carnegie has a regional gifted program and open enrollment. They have above average academic attainment for all their students which is amazing at a school with a majority black population. They have better academic outcomes for black students then Pritzker or Skinner North.
If you have a spot in the regional gifted program, I would recommend taking it. Carnegie buses students who live more than 1.5 miles from the school and between 39 and 75 on the south side.
Another regional gifted option is Morton School of Excellence a new program on the west side. And they don’t have busing boundaries.
