VVSD Superintendent of Schools James Mitchem congratulates Jane Addams students and staff on being named an Exemplary School by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Jane Addams Middle School has earned designation as an Exemplary School based on 2018 Illinois School Report Card data compiled by the Illinois State Board of Education.

The exemplary designation is given to schools with academic performance in the top 10 percent statewide.

To be exemplary, all of a school’s student subgroups, including racial and ethnic groups, students from low-income families or those with special needs, must be performing above thresholds set by the State Board.

Jane Addams Middle School is one of just 47 middle schools in the state that achieved Exemplary status.
