 PARCC Scores

The first ever PARCC scores are to be released this fall. State Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Tony Smith, recently shared an electronic resource to help parents understand the PARCC score reports.  Though many questions remain about the usefulness of these early scores, it is important to educate ourselves on this new data.  Please take a few minutes to review the information at this link:

Members of the District 127 Community,

With each passing year in my role as Superintendent of Grayslake Community High School District 127, I grow ever more proud to serve our students, our staff, and our communities in the collective pursuit of excellence.  This year is no exception.  Despite an auspicious start to the year with tornado damage to Grayslake Central, our team and our communities joined forces to repair our structures and start school on time.  This collaboration is indicative of what District 127 represents, a community of learners who together foster a nurturing and supportive environment that well prepares students not only for success in college, but in handling with love and strength the curveballs that life might throw them.

Our collaborative efforts continue to pay off.  Our graduation rates are among the top in the state, our Advanced Placement programs continue to thrive and our students are earning top honors as National AP scholars and Nation Merit semi-finalists.  For the first time this year we had a student represent D127 at the National Boys State Competition in Washington D.C.

Our programs continue to earn national recognition as well.  Both Grayslake Central and Grayslake North placed among the top of the Washington Post's "Most Challenging High Schools" list, with Central and North ranking 15th and 30th in the state, respectively.  Grayslake Central was also ranked 15th in the state in Newsweek's "America's Best High Schools" report.  In September, Niche ranked District 127 11th in the state for Best Fitness and Sports Programs.  It is clear that no matter our students' path after high school, they leave our D127 family with a strength of mission, vision, passion, and character that will serve them well now and in the future.
