At a Glance | John Mills


Under a reorganization that took effect on July 1, 2020, John Mills Elementary School 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. Previously, we taught students in grades 1-6. (District 401's 6th graders now attend Elm Middle School.)

Our school is located in Elmwood Park, Ill., a Near West suburb of Chicago with a population of about 25,000. Our nickname is the Trojans, and our school colors are maroon and gold. 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.

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. During that school year, we had an enrollment of 610 students.


Mission Statement


Our mission at John Mills Elementary School, in partnership with the home and community, is to promote self-esteem, academic success, social responsibility and lifelong learning by providing for all students and staff a caring and challenging educational environment.
