Millennium Art Academy

Grades: 9-12

Our Insights

What’s Special

Painting, drawing and graphic design

The Downside

Poor attendance

The most popular of the small schools in the Adlai Stevenson Educational Campus, Millennium Art Academy offers classes in painting, drawing and graphic design, as well as the chance to perform in after school theater productions. No audition is required.

Teachers say the school is orderly, and they enthusiastically recommend it to prospective parents, according to school surveys. However, attendance is poor.

Students must pass through metal detectors to enter the building.

Admissions: Educational option formula designed to ensure a mix of low-, average, and high-achieving students. There are far more applicants than seats. (Clara Hemphill, web reports, November 2018)
