1/30/24: PPS sends letters to all parents of Quest Students informing them of which school their student(s) are assigned to for the school year 2024-25. The assignment is based on address/location and Illinois State Board of Education guidelines which require students to be sent to a higher-performing school. The letter also invited parents, guardians, and students to Open Houses for each school. The Open House will introduce you to the programs, clubs, staff, and principal. You can take a tour of the school and ask any questions you may have.
