Bogan High School has demonstrated a complete transformation in culture and climate becoming one of the first CPS school designated as a Supportive School, was the first CPS 1:1 high school, revamped the IB Diploma Programme to earn the school's first diplomas and continuous issuance of IB certificates, and quadrupled the percentage of students receiving post-secondary credentials at her school through innovative partnerships with the local community college, Daley.
