Schools


ELM SUMMER UPDATE: Effective July 1, 2020, Elm Middle School will include District 401's 6th graders. The Elm website will be updated during the summer to reflect this change. The first day of classes for the 2020-21 school year is Monday, Aug. 31, 2020.


Our schools provide a comprehensive, standards-based public education to more than 2,800 students in pre-kindergarten (PK) through 12th grade.

District 401 serves the residents of Elmwood Park, Ill., a Near West suburb of Chicago with a population of about 25,000. All students must be residents of Elmwood Park.


Changes in 2020-21


Please note that one of our former schools, the Early Childhood Center, has closed permanently effective July 1, 2020.

With the ECC's closing, District 401 kindergarten students will attend one of our two elementary schools: Elmwood (for residents living south of the railroad tracks) or John Mills (for residents north of the tracks).

All preschool students in District 401 will attend John Mills.

Also effective July 1, 2020, Elm Middle School will include grade 6 in addition to grades 7-8. Elmwood and John Mills will no longer include 6th grade.
