One Community, One Middle School


Located in the Near West Chicago suburb of Elmwood Park, Ill., Elm Middle School provides a comprehensive, standards-based public education to more than 600 students in grades 6-8 as part of Elmwood Park Community Unit School District 401.

We offer a rigorous three-year curriculum organized within the framework of our recently implemented College & Career Pathways program. In the most recent edition of the annual Illinois Report Cards, which covered the 2020 school year (2019-20), we received a summative designation of Commendable School.

Elm is proud to be the District's only middle school.
