National Honor Society @ AHSH
The National Honor Society at Alcott High School for the Humanities has officially formed and inductions will be occurring in the near future. The AHSH National Honor Society Bylaws have been created and are available for review. AHSH encourages all students to reach their academic potential and NHS is one way the school honors its academic leaders.
Alcott High School Library
After two very long years without a library, Alcott High School is proud to announce its support for its very own library. This library is student focused and full of young adult literature, 30 laptops and much more. Stop in and check out the new library (no pun intended).
Help Us to Grow Our Library
Better yet, help us to grow our library into one of the best school libraries in Chicago Public Schools. We currently have two way to help:
The Amazon Wishlist has dozens of "wishlist" books. It's simple in its approach: search for a book you'd
like to donate to Alcott HS; buy it; and have it shipped directly to our school! That's simple, no?
The DonorsChoose website boasts a request for 40 fiction and nonfiction books to fill those shelves of our new library. We would like to have the very best books ready for our eager readers! Help out today.

Student Expectations and Responsibilities
The level of expectation at Alcott High School for the Humanities is intentionally set high. The reason: we expect students to be challenged on a daily basis and to grow educationally over the course of their four years at AHSH.
