About John Mills Elementary School

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 594 students in pre-kindergarten (PK) through 5th grade as part of Elmwood Park Community Unit School District 401. Prior to 2020-21, 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 2019-20 school year, 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 PK students.
