High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Lincoln Park High School or LPHS, formerly known as Waller High School, was established in 1899 as the first school on Chicago's north side. The school is consistently among the top public high schools. About 90 percent of graduates pursue some form of higher education, accepted at 160 colleges worldwide. Dr. Bessie Karvelas is the principal of the Lincoln Park High School.
The school was started when three division high schools opened in different sections of the city namely North, West, and South, to supplement Chicago's main Central High School. As the student population grew, it became clear that more space was needed, and the erection of a new building at the current location was begun in 1899. In 1900 the school officially opened and was renamed Robert A. Waller High School. The school enrollment was rapid. A 1903 issue of the Yellow and Blue, the school newspaper, lists 82 graduates. The music, athletic, and drama programs were especially strong at this time. In 1919 the ROTC, Reserve Officers' Training Corps was established at Lincoln Park.
Lincoln Park High School is ranked the best high school in Illinois and 30th in the nation by Newsweek based solely on the number of AP, Advanced Placements and IB, the International Baccalaureate courses per graduating senior. According to the State of Illinois Board of Education Report Card, in 2005 Lincoln Park High School did not achieve Adequate Yearly Progress as defined by No Child Left Behind legislation. Test scores for the entire student body in all subjects averaged 58.40 percent. Scores had not improved from 2004. At Lincoln Park High School, there are many sports for all seasons during the school year.

The Lincoln Park High School or LPHS aims on targeting the success of their students. The institution is renowned due to qualities like supportive learning environment, respected and enthusiastic staff and faculty members, and the capability to meet the needs of the community’s wide ranging requirements.
