Lane Tech College Prep is the largest public school in Chicago, ranked #3 in Illinois by U.S. News and World Report. To achieve this level of success, Lane has developed an unparalleled portfolio of challenging academic programs, skill-building STEM classes and extracurricular activities, many of which are not possible without community donations.
