Seneca High School would love to hear from YOU!
You have been invited to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey. The information you provide will help guide improvement as we strive to inspire each student to realize their potential through the education and opportunities we provide at Seneca High School. Your participation in this survey is voluntary but crucial. We can’t receive results from the survey unless at least 20 percent of parents respond. The more responses parents provide, the more we will know how to focus our efforts toward the improvements you want. Therefore, we have set a goal to reach an 80 percent response rate. Please help us reach our goal by completing the survey.
Go to: to take the survey.
You will then be asked a series of questions to provide input regarding your family’s experience here at Seneca High School. Please remember to click “submit” once you are done so your responses can be counted.
Please know that your identity and responses will be kept confidential and will not be connected with your child. If you have multiple children who attend Seneca High School, you may complete one survey for each child. However, only one parent per household may submit a survey for a given child. The survey closes on March 11, so please submit your responses soon!
Thank you in advance for your time and input. We appreciate you!
Mike Coughlin, Principal
Seneca High School

On Saturday, November 6, Anna Bruno, Bailey Johnson, and Elizabeth Davis (pictured from Left to Right) performed in the Illinois Music Education Association District 2 Music Festival, held at Augustana College and Moline High School. District 2 comprises schools from LaSalle County to the Quad Cities and down as far as Peoria. Students who scored well on their district audition will also have the possibility of being selected for the ILMEA All-State Festival in Peoria.
Anna Bruno performed as the pianist for the orchestra, Bailey Johnson played Alto Saxophone in the band, and Elizabeth Davis sang Alto 1 in the choir. The girls rehearsed all day with directors from regional universities, including Northern and Eastern Illinois Universities, and gave a performance in the evening. Congratulations to all three of our 2021 ILMEA District performers!
