College-Bound Take College Level Courses At HHS
Chief Academic Officer Mike Moan said according to the latest Illinois Scholastic Aptitude Tests, 95.8 percent of the District's eighth-graders last year tested at or above grade level in reading, 95.4 percent at or above in math. In the high school, composite scores rose another .4 points for 2012 while the average (lower) State composite score remained unchanged.

Not everything is coming up roses and daffodils in D158 schools, though, according to Moan's report to the Board. The latest District summary from the Illinois State Board of Education shows that three D158 schools will fail to show AYP, fedspeak for Adequate Yearly Progress, in No Child Left Behind testing to be announced next month.
Moan told FEN Huntley High will fail to meet AYP but so will every other high school in McHenry County. "I think only four in the whole State met AYP," said Moan. Eight made it last year but the bar rises each year. Moan said Heineman and Martin schools also will not meet AYP, but only because certain subgroups at each school didn't, not because of overall scores.
