It is a privilege to be superintendent of Grant Community High School District 124 where our mission is to educate each and every student, every day. We are a comprehensive high school district serving grades 9 through 12 with approximately 1,950 students. Students come to us from McHenry School District 15, Gavin School District 37, Big Hollow School District 38, Lake Villa School District 41, Fox Lake Grade School District 114, and St. Bede School.
We have dedicated faculty and staff members who are committed to improving student achievement. We are fortunate to have a Board of Education that fully supports our mission through the dedication of time, leadership, and resources.
Our efforts continue to gain recognition. ACT scores continue to increase year over year. Enrollment and performance in our Advanced Placement programs continues to thrive and for the second consecutive year we have been named to the AP District Honor Roll. In 2015, Grant was recognized as one of the Best High Schools in Illinois in the U.S. News Best High Schools report.
Students continue to be successful and involved with 1,036 students participating in co-curricular clubs and activities and 1,199 student athletes.
We invite you to be involved in the education of your student. While we know that with high school comes an increased expectation of independence, we do very much value parents as partners. We have wonderful students and I look forward to working together to ensure every child reaches their greatest potential at Grant Community High School!
