  • Thinkin' Lincoln

    Having just completed their Illinois Constitution tests, nearly 100 Conrady 6th graders got to see the seat of power up close and personal recently as they visited the state capital in Springfield. In addition to touring the Senate chambers in the Capitol building, students visited Abraham Lincoln’s home and the new Presidential Library and Museum. They also got a chance to pay their respects to the 16th president with a stop at Lincoln’s Tomb.

Principal's Message

Ready, set....go! One of my most favorite things about education is the annual fresh start with a clean slate and we're ready to launch into the 2014-2015 school year.

2014-2015 promises to be the best ever in the history of Conrady Junior High School. We've updated our new logo just about everywhere and the school is beaming with pride. The gymnasium is no longer lit by orange lights. We have a new parking lot in front of the school in addition to new windows and doors. All of these improvement were greatly needed.

We are in the midst of launching our new one-to-one computer initiative with a Chromebook for every student. Phase One includes distribution to all students in grades six and seven this school year. Phase Two will be realized in the fall of 2015 with all three grade levels equipped with the Chromebook device for use at school and home.
 
Math and English Language Arts curriculums have been re-written to align with the Common Core State Standards in effort to better equip and prepare our students for careers and college. Science will be assessing and piloting new curriculum 2014-2015 endeavoring to align with the Next Generation Science Standards.
 
From championship athletic titles, talented performers, scholarship winners, and outstanding academic achievement, Conrady Junior High School has a wide variety of success with a promising future. Our parents, staff, and students give us great reasons to brag.
