Students, teachers and parents across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the fourth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.


On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

  • Effective Leaders

  • Collaborative Teachers

  • Involved Families

  • Supportive Environments

  • Ambitious Instruction


Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials. All teachers and 6th through 12th grade students will be responding to this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be sent to schools and districts in March 2017 and will also be included in the State School Report Card. Additionally, our district has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. If at least 20 percent of Moline High School parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will also be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card. Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.  The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted November 16 through January 30, 2017. To take the survey please visit  and select the appropriate survey to begin.

MHS CONFERENCES February  23rd and 24th

Thursday • 3:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Friday • 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 Noon

Moline High School will hold second semester parent/teacher conferences on February 23rd and February 24th.  The format for conferences allows parents to meet directly with their son or daughter’s teachers.  We strongly encourage your student to attend the conference with you, as this provides students an opportunity to share in the responsibility for their education.  Conferences should be seen as an opportunity for students, parents/guardians, and teachers to work together to improve the student’s educational outcomes.  


In order to facilitate your schedule, you are encouraged, but not required to reserve a ten-minute conference slot in advance with the teachers of your choice.  You may also sign-up on the sheet next to the teacher’s door to reserve a time slot the day of conferences.  This will allow you to schedule appointments and reduce the amount of wait time.  Due to time constraints, we must limit conferences to ten minutes.  If you need to meet with a teacher for a longer amount of time, please contact the teacher and set up an alternative day and time for a conference.  Teacher contact information will be available at conferences, or you can click on the staff directory on the right side of this web page.

Moline High School Illinois State Scholars

The Illinois State Scholar Program recognizes students attending approved high schools for outstanding academic achievement. State scholar designation provides honorary recognition with no monetary award. Approximately the top ten percent of graduates from approved high schools are announced as State Scholars each year.

“Excellent high school grades are tremendously important for laying the groundwork for future college success.” said ISAC Executive Director Andrew Davis, whose agency has overseen the Illinois State Scholars program since 1958.  “Illinois State Scholars are among the best and the brightest in our state’s high schools, and we salute them, their families, and the teachers and staff at Moline High School for this stellar achievement.”

School Safety

Moline High School is pleased to announce that for the 2016-2017 school year we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System to build on campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students safe is knowing who is in our building at all times. The Raptor System will better allow us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our school.


Upon entering Moline High School, all visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The Raptor system will check the national database to identify dangerous or wanted individuals and sex offenders. It is important to note the Raptor system only scans the visitor’s name, date of birth and photo for comparison with the national data base. Student safety is our highest priority and the Raptor Visitor Management System provides a consistent way to deter people who may present a danger to our students. Therefore, all visitors to the school must be scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support of enhancing school safety protocols at MHS.
