A dozen CPS high schools enrolled fewer than 50 freshman this year -- typically the school's largest grade. It's partly a result of there being 140 high schools in the city, compared with 88 a decade ago. Meanwhile, CPS is recommending charter school operator Noble Street Network open one more, even as it put six charter high schools on warning.
