Kelvyn Park High School is a public 4-year high school located in the Hermosa neighborhood on north-west side of Chicago, Illinois, United States. It is operated by the Chicago Public Schools district. Located at 4343 West Wrightwood Avenue, it is adjacent to Kelvyn Park, a Chicago Park District neighborhood park.
Kelvyn Park began as an elementary school in 1918. Before that time, the land contained 19 portable units that were connected to Nixon Elementary School. In 1925, a junior high school was organized in the building to relieve pressure at Carl Schurz High School, which was overcrowded at the time. In 1927, some of the Kelvyn Park elementary students were phased-out to the newly constructed Barry Elementary School. In 1933, Kelvyn Park became a high school; however, elementary students remained until 1936. Kelvyn Park has a graduation rate of 59.3 percent.
