MTHS Designated Exemplary!

As part of the new support and accountability system that launched this year, ISBE (Illinois State Board of Education) has identified MTHS as EXEMPLARY based on the new ESSA (replaces No Child Left Behind) designations. The exemplary designation is reserved for schools performing in the top 10% of schools statewide, with no under-performing student groups. While we recognize this is just one data point, we take pride in being recognized for the great things we know go on inside our building. There is always room for growth and we plan to utilize this data towards our continuous improvement as a school and integral part of the community. We will continually build on the talent of our incredible teachers and staff and look forward to including parents, families, and community partners in the work ahead.
