  • Crimson House Mystery

    Conrady’s Drama Club members served up a satisfying menu of laughter and lunacy this weekend in their delightfully offbeat production of “The Crimson House Mystery.” The spoof of private eye shows featured a baker’s dozen of memorable characters: a pint-sized detective, a mystery writer, a pompous actress, a clueless cop, a bewildered butler, and a hotel manager who harbors a few secrets. Did we mention a murder—or two? It was all in good fun and wrapped in a sparkling set design that contributed to some standout performances. Congratulations to the cast, crew, and sponsors for a terrific production.

  • Symposium Success

    Conrady showed off some its best and brightest students at the second annual 8th Grade Symposium, held this past weekend before an appreciative crowd at Stagg High School. Expanded from last year’s Honors Program, this year’s Multiple Intelligences Symposium was open to all 8th grade students and showcased the many ways students learn. Combining subjects such as history, economics, mathematics, art, sociology and language arts, students presented their well-researched projects using everything from dance, music, and poetry, to model design and dramatic monologues. The end result was an unforgettable evening of student achievement. Congratulations to all who participated.

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.
