Oak Lawn Community High School is located in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Our over 1800 students come from the six square mile geographic boundaries that define this public, single-school Illinois district.
Oak Lawn is a diverse school-community with over 22 different languages spoken in the homes of our students. We have a growing population of English language learners who are supported by both Arabic and Spanish bilingual programming. Additionally, approximately 40% of our students are eligible for fee waivers or free/reduced lunch programs.
OLCHS has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School since 2017. We are proud of the shift in teaching and learning that has now become our new normal. Read this book to find out more about our innovative school where students are empowered to learn.
A wonderful reflection of the great work being accomplished by our #olchspride students under the leadership of Principal Dr. Lietz.
