Spotlight On...

Moline High School students receive recognition in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Congratulations to Karthik Prakash--Commended Student, Connor Dessert--Semifinalist, Nathan Fields--Commended Student, Lucas Petre--Commended Student, Ashley Barker--Commended Student, and Pranjal Kadwe--Commended Student! 
Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program are being recognized for the exceptional academic promise demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the PSAT/National Merit Qualifying Test last October.  Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition.  
Semifinalists In the National Merit Scholarship Program are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent less than 1 percent of each state's high school seniors.  They are the only participants to qualify to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships to be awarded in the spring of 2017.  


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.

MHS Junior Honored by Boys & Girls Club
