Corliss High School Renovations

821 East 103rd Street

The PBC Board has approved a Partial Undertaking Request from the Board of Education for renovations at George Henry Corliss Early College STEM High School.

Corliss is an Early College Science, Technology, Engineering and Math school (ECSS) which enables students to earn both a high school diploma and college credits (as early as 10th grade). Our mission is to provide individualized supports necessary to ensure that all students are successful. The school, named in the honor of American engineer George Henry Corliss, opened in 1974 and joined the Chicago Public Schools’ STEM Program in 2012.

The scope of PBC’s work at Corliss High School includes targeted roof replacement and repairs as well as masonry tuckpointing and façade restoration. Limited interior improvements are proposed to mitigate water filtration damage. Site improvements may include parking lot upgrades, stormwater management infrastructure and associated landscaping.

The PBC built the original Corliss building in 1974 and renovated the science labs in 1992. Corliss was also renovated as part of the 2013 School Investment Program.
