    Despite the on-and-off cloud cover, Conrady students and staff took advantage of the opportunity to witness the solar eclipse Monday.

Principal's Message

  • Mr. Andy Anderson FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRINCIPAL
     
    The 2017-2018 school year marks completion of a $20 million multi-year renovation project. While there are still remaining areas of the building to address, the building overall has an updated look as well as better spaces to accommodate our ever-changing education program for students. Conrady's enrollment is nearing 1100 students, the most in over a decade, if not longer. 
     
    Our staff is a phenomenal team. Dedicated and determined for student success is evident in the following ways:
     
    *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 groups 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!
     
    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. Our after school programs ensure opportunities for students to be well-rounded in all areas. 
     
    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
