About John Mills Elementary School
JOHN MILLS SUMMER UPDATE: Effective July 1, 2020, John Mills Elementary School will serve students in pre-kindergarten (PK) 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 John Mills Elementary School, home of the Trojans!
Located in the Near West Chicago suburb of Elmwood Park, Ill., John Mills Elementary provides a comprehensive, standards-based public education to students in pre-kindergarten (PK) through 5th grade 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.)
Along with Elmwood Elementary, we are one of the District's two elementary schools, and we are the only D401 school that teaches PK students.
