The objective in defining my classroom is  to keep  my students focused on a deep understanding of the standards and on helping my students develop the skills of critical thinking, inquiry, collaboration and communication. Just as important to my students is the abilities to synthesize and evaluate information, to take intellectual risks and to develop global perspectives as they use what they’ve learned to solve the problems of today and tomorrow.

Peer Tutoring Resources

LSHS Peer Tutoring/Mentor Program

In order to prompt lifelong learning all departments have teamed up to promote student to student education. The peer tutor group is scheduled in the library from 7:15 to 3:15 on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Students that have excelled their academics volunteer their time on a weekly basis to mentor/tutor students. This is a great opportunity for students to learn in a diverse atmosphere and become involved with the community. Students volunteering their time as tutors understand the commitment, conduct themselves to achieve excellence, and have proven to be true leaders in their community.  We will encourage all students to take advantage of these resources at Lisle Senior High School.

"Making a positive impact on the community one student at a time"
