  • Setting Up a Win

    The 8th Grade Lady Jaguars used a strong service game and some timely hitting to defeat the Prairie View Eagles Monday at Conrady. The straight-set victory featured several long runs by Conrady as they raced to a lead in both games and held off a determined foe. The 7th graders were less successful however, as a seesaw battle saw the Eagles pull away for victories in two games. Both Boys’ Basketball teams similarly lost to Prairie View in Tinley Park, but hope to get back on the wining track Tuesday at home, where they face Tinley’s Central Junior High.

  • Safety Incident

    On Friday, January 27, 2017, school administration was informed of an incident that took place on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 around 3:00-3:15 p.m. While walking home, two students were approached by a male driving a white four door car and were offered a ride home. The students involved rejected the offer and the car continued driving. School administration contacted local law enforcement promptly after receiving this information on Friday, January 27, 2017. Staff and students were provided with pertinent information and were reminded to be aware of their surroundings, report suspicious people or vehicles to an adult, and to never accept a ride from someone other than the designated person who picks them up. Glen Oaks School and North Palos School District 117 do not take safety matters lightly. As always, school safety is a collective effort by all to be aware and report any type of suspicious activity to school personnel or local law enforcement.

  • History in the Making

    Friday was Inauguration Day and some students in Conrady Social Studies classes watched the live feed of the presidential inauguration. The peaceful transfer of power from one administration to the next is a hallmark of America’s democratic government, as outgoing President Barack Obama made way for President Donald Trump.

  • Eye on the Ball

    Conrady’s 7th Grade Girls’ volleyball team opened the winter sports season with a win Tuesday, but it was a cold start for the rest of the Jaguars, however. The 7th and 8th Grade Boys Basketball teams both dropped contests at Evergreen’s Central Junior High. The 7th graders topped Evergreen in two hard-fought sets at Conrady, while the 8th graders lost a tough three-set match. Next up: Liberty Junior High on Thursday.

Principal's Message


The 2016-2017 school year marks my 20th year in education. In having taught in other communities at both the middle school and high school levels, as well as having been an assistant principal at both the middle school and high school levels, Conrady Junior High has been one of the toughest places to work, but also of the most special places to work. Here's a short list of why:

*Conrady ranks consistently in the top-five schools in the State of Illinois in academic achievement based on student demographics. 
*Conrady's athletic, academic, visual and performing arts teams regularly place first in conference events and contests.
*North Palos Schools equips our staff with outstanding training and resources for students to be successful. 
*We are progressive with our curriculum to ensure that students continue to meet the ever-changing expectations of learning standards and to be competitive with their acquired skills. 
*Our school reflects a diverse population of ethnicities, backgrounds, languages, and ideas that help shape us into being well-rounded individuals. 
*Conrady staff goes above and beyond expectations in part by working all hours of the day and on weekends in order for kids to have the best possible education. 
*Our students are talented, work hard, and are just plain enjoyable to be around. We have great kids!

I mentioned Conrady as being a "tough" place to work because our expectations are high. We never settle. We truly look at each individual student on a regular basis to identify how better we can serve each one.  

It is my pleasure and a privilege to be Principal of Conrady Junior High School. With a fabulous leadership team, outstanding teachers, and ever-so-dedicated support staff, we constantly work together for Conrady to be the flagship school of District 117 in our pursuit to be a leading exemplary school within Illinois and the nation as we strive to Be the Best for the World! 

Mr. Andy Anderson
