FJHS Achieves Illinois's Highest Ranking

Be proud! Your child attends one of the top performing schools in the state! We are thrilled to share that Fulton Jr. High was ranked among the Top 10 percent of schools in the State of Illinois for the second year in a row!


FJHS received the "Exemplary" summative designation on our 2019 Illinois School Report Card from the Illinois State Board of Education. Designations were new to the School Report Card starting in 2018, which include an emphasis on student growth in the areas of math and reading among other data.


An "Exemplary" rating is the highest possible designation and is reserved for schools who have no underperforming student groups and whose performance is within the top 10% of schools statewide. We are very proud of our students and staff for their hard work throughout the year. We believe in our outside-the-box approach to educating the whole child, and while we get to see the positive impact we make each day, it is still exciting to receive this affirmation and recognition from the state.


While we celebrate this success, we will continue to evaluate student performance and work on areas of improvement to keep moving forward. #pantherpride
