For the second year in a row, Kaneland schools again celebrate outstanding student performance on the ACT.

Students who graduated from Kaneland High School in 2014 posted an ACT Composite Score of 22.2, which is the highest ever composite score for a District 302 graduating class and 1.5 points higher than the state average. Analyses of individual subject area scores also reveal that Kaneland students surpass state averages in every category: Math (21.9), Science (22.0), Reading (22.5) and English (21.7).

"I could not be more proud of the ACT scores posted by the Kaneland High School Class of 2014. ACT is one of many measures we use to celebrate our mission to graduate all students college, career, and community ready," said Superintendent Jeff Schuler. "This achievement shows the commitment of our students, teachers, parents, and staff to academic success."

Success on the ACT joins several other academic accolades earned by the district in recent years. Kaneland schools have been applauded for their innovative blended learning program, systematic RtI intervention plan, and notable improvements in overall academic performance. As recently as May, 2014, Kaneland High School was recognized for outstanding academic achievement by Illinois State Superintendent Chris Koch.

Teachers and staff throughout Kaneland schools have accepted the challenge of readying all students for their future paths. As the district continues its mission to graduate all students college, career, and community ready, student performance on the ACT is one of many measures indicating the realization of this mission.
