Grant Park Named to Top Illinois Schools List

Grant Park Named to Top Illinois Schools List
Posted on 01/27/2017
NicheWelcome to 2017!   The second half of the school year began with some fantastic news for the students and staff of Grant Park School District #6.  In early January, district officials were notified that District #6 had been selected as one of the “Top Illinois Schools” according to rankings by NICHE.  This prestigious ranking was based on several variables, such as overall school achievement, culture, club activities offered, demographics of staff, and surveys.  Without doubt, it created a sense of pride throughout our school district.  On behalf of the District, I sincerely appreciate the verbal congrats, positive notes, and appreciative comments heard throughout the community during the past month.    This marks the third prestigious award for the District, as we have received “Academic Honor Award School” from the Illinois State Board of Education, “Americas Best High Schools” from US News and World Report, and now “Top Illinois School Member” from NICHE.  – Dr. John Palan
