  • Mid-Quarter Progress Reports

    Greetings Illinois School Families,

    Progress reports will be delivered on May 7, 2021. The last day to turn in work is Wednesday, April 28, 2021. This will allow ample time for teachers to enter grades into the gradebook. Please continue to encourage our students to do their very best, turn in work on time, and communicate with their teachers to ensure their academic success.

    Progress reports are just a snapshot of where our students are currently and are not officially saved on their transcripts. We, at Illinois School, know that we cannot be successful without you!
