Why Somonauk High School?

There are many ways to judge a school; the teachers, the students, the administration, athletics, academics-to name a few.  I firmly believe that the students and the teachers make the school what it is.  They have the power and influence on what happens daily.  At SHS, we have the best students and teachers in the area.  Here are some reasons why:

  • SHS offers 11 clubs and organizations in addition to sports.  79% of our students are involved in a club/organization/sport
  • 80% of students who took the AP test last year scored a ‘3’ or higher, earning them instant college credit.  Our 80% is compared to 61% nationally
  • 74% of students met or exceeded standards on the ACT and WorkKeys test.  This is the highest percentage of students meeting or exceeding in the history of SHS!
  • Our cheerleaders placed 3rd in state, soccer won a regional and sectional championship, boy’s basketball won the Little 10 Tournament, softball won a regional and sectional championship and track provided boys and girls state qualifiers. 
  • The SHS Band won numerous awards and trophies, including awards at Somonauk Summer Fest, the West Suburban Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Sycamore Pumpkin Parade, and the Grundy County Corn Festival. 
  • The Agriculture and FFA program has won numerous awards and competitions and is nationally ranked!

If you are looking for a place that has opportunities for involvement, to excel academically, or be part of a successful program, then your child belongs at SOMONAUK HIGH SCHOOL!

Our school district is full of wonderful and dedicated teachers, kids, and parents. A personal goal of mine is to work with parents and community members to build a partnership to enhance learning at Somonauk High School. This partnership will not only consist of myself educating families on what we do in the school and why, it will also seek feedback on what we can do to further meet the needs of students and make them employable in their future endeavors.

I encourage each of you to visit the school and thank you in advance for supporting your children and Somonauk High School as we embrace the learning process together. Please remember to visit our website at www.somonauk.net/schools/high_school for important dates, information regarding curriculum, and newsletters.
