Glen Oaks students and staff learned on Thursday morning that our school earned an Exemplary designation from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). This is the highest designation that a school can earn!!
From the ISBE website:
Exemplary: A school in which no student demographic groups performing at or below the level of the “all students” group in the lowest 5 percent of all schools, a graduation rate greater than 67 percent, and whose performance is in the top 10 percent of schools statewide as measured by the multi-measures accountability index.
