About Providence Englewood Charter School
- Joined Urban Initiatives’ Work to Play program in the fall of 2012.
- Located in the West Englewood neighborhood in Chicago and has 491 students.
- 90% of the school population is African American. 93% come from low-income households.
- PECS students take their academics very seriously. Before practice you'll see all of the students sitting down in the hallway either reading or trying to get their homework done before practice.
- PECS is a charter school, so they have kids who attend from different neighborhoods in Chicago. Some of the students have long commutes to get to school, but this doesn’t stop them from staying for practices and games after classes end.
