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.
Make-up Days and Times...
The John Glenn School Board took official action at its February 18th meeting, deciding to make up the equivalent of one snow day by adding one-half hour to the school day for all students.
Starting in March, students will attend school for an additional half-hour Monday through Thursday for twelve days. Those days are: 3rd through the 6th, 10th through the 13th, and the 17th through the 20th. School dismissal will be one-half hour later than normal. For example, if your student’s school dismissal time is at 2:45 p.m., then the extended dismissal time will be at 3:15 p.m.
Also, the following days will be used as snow make-up days: April 18th and 21st, and May 29th and 30th.
Hopefully this “make-up” schedule will not be too disruptive to your family schedule. This plan could change if additional days are missed between now and the end of the school year. Please try to remain flexible and understanding during this extremely unusual circumstance.
