From Preschool to 5th Grade


Located in the Near West Chicago suburb of Elmwood Park, Ill., John Mills Elementary provides a comprehensive, standards-based public education to 594 students in pre-kindergarten (PK) through 5th grade as part of Elmwood Park Community Unit School District 401.

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.

Along with Elmwood Elementary, we are one of the District's two elementary schools, and we are the only D401 school that teaches preschool students.
