Illinois School Report Card
For many years District 95 has stressed the importance of focusing on student growth and working to meet the varied needs of our students to promote their success. We have developed our curriculum and tailored our instructional practices to make sure that all of our students are learning and growing. In the new Illinois School Report Card, our commitment to student growth has been recognized. Both S.E. Gross Middle School and Brook Park Elementary were named Exemplary by the State Board of Education. This status lists us as being in the top 10% of schools in the state. While excited, we know this report is only one measure. As always, we will continue to strive to provide the best educational opportunities for the students of Brookfield and LaGrange Park that focuses on student’s continual growth. Thank you to all who have been fantastic partners in education.
