About Elmwood Elementary School


ELMWOOD SUMMER UPDATE: Effective July 1, 2020, Elmwood Elementary School will serve students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Our website will be updated during the summer to reflect this change. The first day of classes for 2020-21 is Monday, Aug. 31, 2020.


Welcome to Elmwood Elementary School, home of the Panthers!

Located in the Near West Chicago suburb of Elmwood Park, Ill., Elmwood Elementary provides a comprehensive, standards-based public education to students in grades K-5 as part of Elmwood Park Community Unit School District 401. Prior to the 2020-21 school year, we taught students in grades 1-6. (Sixth graders now attend Elm Middle School.)

In the most recent edition of the annual Illinois Report Cards, which covered the 2018-19 school year, we received a summative designation of Commendable School.

Along with John Mills Elementary, we are one of the District's two elementary schools.
