  • Arts in Education

    In celebration of National Arts in Education Week, Ms. Brudzisz’ Art Club students worked after school on crafting mobiles that touched on a variety of themes. National Arts in Education Week is a national celebration recognizing the tranformative power of the arts in education. Designated by Congress in 2010, the celebration is designed to support equitable access to the arts for all students.

    The Lady Jaguars opened their home schedule Tuesday with a hard-fought contest against Orland Junior High. Conrady scored a two-out run early in the game, but couldn’t hold down the Eagles’ bats, falling 9-2. The Boys’ team got behind early, but stormed back with a flurry of runs, topping the Eagles in Orland Park 15-8.

  • Safe at Home

    After last week’s bout of bad weather postponed the home openers, Conrady’s softball teams started the season off with a flourish. The Boys’ team battled Prairie View in a tight contest that saw the Jaguars score some late runs (including two safe calls at the plate) to hang on for a 7-6 victory. The Lady Jaguars, meanwhile, showed some spunk in racing out to a 4-0 lead before falling to the Eagles in the late innings.

  • Saturday at Shedd

    Conrady’s Adventure Club students took their first field trip of the school year to Shedd Aquarium Saturday. In addition to taking in the aquatic show, where penguins and beluga whales performed, the students toured a host of exhibits. The current “Underwater Beauty” exhibit celebrates more than 100 species from around the globe and gives visitors a chance to dive deep into the mysteries of the oceans.

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 has topped 1100 students and we are still growing.  
     
    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 
    *Two national academic awards within the past five years
    *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!
