Curriculum Areas


District 401's two elementary schools — John Mills Elementary and Elmwood Elementary — provide rigorous, standards-based instruction in a variety of academic subjects. We invite you to learn more about these content areas by visiting the sections below.

In the case of English language arts and math, the sections below also provide links to information about the relevant Common Core Standards and Illinois Learning Standards.

In the pages devoted to other subjects, we provide links to the Illinois Learning Standards applicable to those areas — or to the International Society for Technology in Education Standards in the case of our technology offerings.

Do you have general questions about curricular programming and content? If so, please contact Dr. Kimberly Ontiveros, the District's Director for Curriculum & Instruction.
