Mendota High School will join the Illinois State Board of Education in the tenth statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From January 11 through March 11, students and teachers will be asked to take a 25 - minute - research - based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school's learning environment. The parent survey supplement will also be administered during the same survey window. These surveys will serve as an opportunity for schools to reflect on progress since the last statewide implementation.

"We encourage all our teachers, students, and parents to make their voices heard to impact change at Mendota High School. Please participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey so we may review our school needs and respond to those needs. MHS has consistently participated  in the statewide 5Essentials Survey and is opting to administer the survey to teachers  and students again this year to continue tracking and informing progress." - Denise Aughenbaugh, Principal
