“It is a fantastic honor to be recognized as one of the best schools in the state,” said Principal Dr. Vincent Mulieri. “This is a testament to the hardworking students and staff at Elwood-John Glenn High School. We strive to always move forward and do our best as we go along, and this recognition is duly deserved.”

Wonderful news; congratulations to all! It's nice to see a continuation of the great progress that has been made in Elwood over the past ten years. You should never be satisfied with yesterday, and even today is a static point. Kaizen rocks!
