Striving to be the Best School District in Illinois
We are proud of our teachers and students and are grateful for a very talented support staff and supportive community. Our students consistently score well on state tests. In fact, US News and World Report, recently named Stockton High School as one of the top high schools in Illinois based on test scores and overall achievement and performance. As a District, we continue to focus on literacy across all curricular areas and grade levels.
One of our proudest academic components is our dual credit college offerings that we host on our own campus in partnership with Highland Community College. Each year, over 40 juniors and seniors take advantage of these college classes that transfer directly to four year colleges and universities. Our athletic programs are consistently competitive and successful. We are home to a state championship music program, an agriculture curriculum with a very active FFA, and with the financial help of the Stockton Education Foundation, our students and teachers are able to utilize the latest in technological tools. The Foundation has awarded over $200,000 in teacher and student grants since 2008.
In 2008, the District initiated an innovative Freshmen Transition and Support Program that helps guide 9th graders through the first year of high school assisted by adult and student mentors. This program has been recognized for its impact on our 9th graders at the state and regional level.
The District is also known for its outstanding approach to working with special needs students and features a universal pre-kindergarten that accommodates all of the community’s early childhood needs.
