I am very excited to begin this school year. I am proud to say that Lanphier High School will help all of our students meet the challenges of Illinois standards aligned curriculum. As you are probably aware, graduation requirements have increased for students in the class of 2012 and beyond. To help ensure all students meet these requirements, Lanphier High School staff and teachers have spent extensive time in learning new and enhancing promising practice instructional techniques and in developing interventions programs and systems to assist and help prevent students from falling behind. Additionally, we are revising our assessment and grading practices to better measure and report the achievement gains of students. Finally, we have added some new curricular options for our students such as Latin, German and marching band.
Open House is scheduled for Wednesday, September 17, 2008. It begins at 6:30 in the Lanphier commons.
