Schools to Watch


Since 2009, we've proudly held the designation as an Illinois Horizon Schools To Watch. This recognition is granted by the National Forum, a nonprofit association committed to enhancing education for young adolescents. The Forum, comprised of educators, researchers, and state departments of education, oversees the Schools to Watch program, which acknowledges schools excelling in supporting middle-grade students both academically and emotionally. With over 600 recognized schools across 17 states, these institutions prioritize inclusivity and culturally relevant education. As continual models of excellence, Schools to Watch serve as mentors for educators nationwide. For more information please visit their website
