Providing an education to our students that gives boundless opportunity for children to achieve their hopes and dreams upon graduating is our ultimate goal. Students are more likely to achieve their goals if we support them to be ready for school upon entering kindergarten; achieve grade level literacy by grade three; attain career and college readiness; graduate from high school; and close the identified achievement gaps in the district.
District 196 is a nationally-recognized school district with a record of outstanding achievement both in and out of the classroom. Students consistently win large numbers of scholarships, as well as state and national awards in a variety of academic, arts and athletic competitions. Approximately 92 percent of District 196 students graduate after four years of high school and 90 percent of graduates indicate plans to continue their education.
We are proud of the many achievements of our students.
