FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRINCIPAL
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!
