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.

TCU/Junior Achievement Titan Challenge...
On March 7th, 2014, twenty-eight students competed in the TCU/Junior Achievement Titan Challenge. This economics contest requires teams of four students to make a variety of business decisions while competing against teams from other schools. Out of twenty-nine total teams, five of the seven teams from John Glenn finished in the top ten. While five area schools competed, the contest came down to teams from John Glenn and Penn. Two John Glenn teams won scholarship money by finishing first and second. If any of these students attend Bethel College, Bethel will provided additional scholarship funds. Both of these teams will now participate in the online national competition. Mr. Richie thanks all students who participated for their efforts.
