“Our information fair is a wonderful opportunity to get to know our school,” said Alan Gibby, Keith’s Head of School. “Both teachers and students take great pride in showing off the campus and informing people about the programs we have.”
The 2009-10 school year has already been loaded with academic, fine arts and sports program successes.
Keith’s most recent composite SAT scores (1,222) exceeded the national average by 200 points while the school’s ACT composite (25.9) was nearly 6 points above the national average. In addition, 16 students were named AP Scholars by the College Board in October, and in November, 30 percent of the senior class earned the designation Illinois State Scholar.
In sports, the boys’ varsity soccer team advanced to the 2009 State Tournament, the girls’ tennis team won the school’s first sectional title and the girls’ volleyball finished third in the Northern Athletic Conference.
In fine arts, the drama department’s production of Just Another High School Play performed in front of sold-out audiences in December, while students in grades second through 12th showcased art work at three different art openings during the last two months.
