ENGLEWOOD — Chicago Public Schools officials will give updates on the new Englewood STEM High School at a community meeting Wednesday night. 

The hour-long meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Parker Community Academy, 6800 S. Stewart Ave. Conrad Timbers-Ausar, who was recently named principal of the Englewood STEM high school, is slated to give updates on the school’s development and the student application process at the meeting.

Chicago Public Schools recently announced that the still unnamed $85 million high school, scheduled to open in fall 2019 with a freshman-only class, would be an early college science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) school. All high school grade levels are expected to be accommodated by the beginning of the school year in 2022-2023.

The school will be built where the now-shuttered Paul Robeson High School currently stands at 6835 S. Normal Blvd. Three other high schools, TEAM Englewood Community Academy High School, Harper High School and John Hope Academy are being “phased out” over the next three years due to low enrollment and poor student performance, the district has said.
