DHS Attains Elite Status

Deerfield High School is only one of 11 schools in Illinois to make “adequate yearly progress.”

Deerfield High School is among only 11 in Illinois to meet required Illinois and federal standards for yearly progress, according to a story in Wednesday’s Chicago Tribune. No other north suburban schools including New Trier and Highland Park made the grade.

This achievement was part of the state’s school report card issued Wednesday. According to the Tribune article, schools must meet passing requirements on state exams. Otherwise the institutions fail to meet adequate yearly progress set by federal standards.

The Interactive Illinois Report Card gives detail on the performance not only of Deerfield High School, but the Deerfield Public School District 109 schools as well as an overall picture of the District.

That's great news for the High School. The Tribune report card showed that no elementary or middle schools in District 109 made the Top 50 list or the AYP goal. You should think that for all the hulla balou about 109 and the average teacher salary being north of $85K that 109 would place a school in the top 50. Is 109 laying adequate ground work for future high school students? Are we getting our monies worth? Just asking.

Many familes have added tutoring to the plate of these students at the Elementary level to get the kids skiills up to become successful through the guidance of the high school staff! Very commendable to the high school and elementary staff who get! Congrats DHS!
