CPS: Marine Academy Not Moving to Ames, but Ames Will Have Military Focus

Logan Square - In another twist to the Ames Middle School-Marine Math and Science Academy saga, a Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman said Thursday that Marine Academy will not move into the Ames Building, but that Ames will have a military academic focus next year.

Seemingly contradicting information released Tuesday at a press conference attended by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Alderman Roberto Maldonado (26th) and Chicago school board members David Vitale and Jesse Ruiz, CPS spokeswoman Becky Carroll said the Ames building will not become home to the Marine Academy next year, but will still become a military school.
