Conrady Named National ESEA Distinguished School

Conrady Junior High School is one of only two schools in Illinois and among 100 in the country recognized for exceptional student performance and academic growth.

The 1,100-student junior high school was named a National ESEA Distinguished School by the National Association of The Elementary and Secondary Education Act State Program Administrators and the Illinois State Board of Education.

This is the second time Conrady has earned this prestigious award. In 2014, Conrady was recognized for this honor under the previous name of National Title I Distinguished Award.

The National ESEA Distinguished Schools Program highlights select schools that have successfully used their ESEA federal funds to improve the education of all students, including economically disadvantaged students.

The Program publicly recognizes federally funded schools for the outstanding academic achievements of their students. It highlights the efforts of schools across the country that are making significant improvements for their students.
