"One Year Older, One Year Smarter" Program
In 2003, Jim Mills[who?] donated $1 million to the Clinton School to help start the "One Year Older, One Year Smarter" program. This progressive achievement program offers the following cash awards.
- $25 to any students who score higher on the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) than they did the year before.
- $50 to the best improvement in the class
- $100 to the two students who score highest in their class.
- $1,000 to the person who scores highest in their grade and to the student in each grade who has improved most from the year before.
- $5,000 to the student who shows the most improvement from the previous year.
In addition, each year Mills presents a $10,000 savings bond to the student with the highest score in the school. Overall, Clinton has scored highest in the state-wide ISAT test for three consecutive years.
