Illinois Assessment of Readiness
Our students take federally required assessments every spring. The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) helps us understand how our students are growing academically, compared to their peers across the state. The state uses this information to provide more support and resources to the schools in the greatest need. This year, these assessments will be administered April 14-21. Students will complete three sections of English Language Arts and three sections of Math. 

Tiger Athletics
Please join us in cheering on our Tigers at their first meet of the season
