Due to the recent bad weather, we now have three snow days to make-up. The following dates will be used as make-up days: January 19, February 13, and February 16.

US News and World Report announced that John Glenn High School is ranked 17th among the many high schools in the state. Congratulations! I hope you are aware that there are roughly 400 high schools in the state of Indiana. This ranking means that we sit among the top 4% of the secondary schools in the Hoosier State. This outstanding achievement is only possible because of the excellent teaching staff here at the high school accompanied by a wonderful student body.

JGHS Once Again a 4 Star School!
Indiana Superintendent of Instruction, Glenda Ritz, announced that John Glenn High School was a 4 Star School for 2012-2013. In order to achieve this award, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in three categories (attendance, graduation rate, and ISTEP-ECA scores). There are more than 2,000 public and private schools in Indiana.
About 300 schools received the 4 Star Award throughout the state. Superintendent Ritz congratulated John Glenn by writing, "I am honored to name your school as a Four Star School this year. Winning this award required excellent work by students, teachers, parents, counselors, staff members and administrators throughout the year . . . . On behalf of the Indiana Department of Education I send JGHS my sincere congratulations."
This is the fourth time in six years that JGHS has won this honor. No other high school in Michiana has done this except for JGHS!! John Glenn High School will celebrate this achievement on Friday, May 2nd. The students and staff will enjoy a ribeye steak lunch and picnic.
