Next Generation School 5

NGS has finished in top 3 at the IESA state championships in Scholastic Bowl for 4 straight years from 2013 to 2016, winning the championship in 2014. NGS won the IL Regional tournament of the National Science Bowl in 2014. In 2016, a team consisting of current students and 9th grade alumni won the Junior National Academic Championship against top teams from across the nation. For some reason, you won't find any of these information on the school's own website. But when it comes to academic excellence, NGS is certainly among the elite in the state of IL.

Great teachers, attentive staff, fantastic leadership. The principal is out front every morning and every afternoon to greet the kids and parents. She knows every child by name and is always looking out for their safety. The teachers are creative and excited about teaching and the children thrive under this system.

Mr. Taylor is a fantastic history teacher. He keeps the kids engaged with exciting stories, visuals and acting. My son decided he wanted to be a history teacher after a few months in Mr. Taylor's class. The ultimate compliment! Thank you Mr. Taylor.

Homework progressed to about an hour a night in middle school. There is a study hall period so a lot of kids get much done there too

Positive reinforcement and great modeling by teachers encourages kids to keep with it. This is reinforced in sports and classes

Majority, though not all, of the staff and faculty are very courteous and set great examples for students to follow on how to be respectful of others.

There are many ways to measure a school's academic success. One such measure has to be the school's performance in academic competitions against other elite schools in the state. Next Generation has finished in top 3 in the state in IESA Scholastic Bowl for 4 years in a row, winning the championship in 2014.

Respect is modeled at NGS, the teachers respect each other and the students. The staff and administration respect each other and the students. This travels down to the students knowing how to model respect.

The school has several charities (humane society, children's cancer society, etc.) that they rally everyone around at different times. There are fund raisers and all of the money raised goes to the charities.

When something is questioned (My son stole candy from another's backpack) the teachers get all of the information before discussing. Then they discuss with the child to see if he or she can work through appropriate options for making amends.
