Welcome to District 41

It’s been a great year so far in District 41! I am proud to share that we are a high achieving community of learners from Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Glen Ellyn, Lombard, and Wheaton. Our district serves about 3,600 children from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade in four elementary schools and one junior high.

Our comprehensive curriculum includes Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Science, Art, Music, and Physical Education. Spanish starts in first grade, and there is a dual-language option that begins in kindergarten. We are very proud of our Hadley Junior High students who participate in our extra-curricular music programs such as the string orchestra, band and chorus.

Please feel free to browse our website and follow us on social media for updates on meetings, events and student accomplishments. You can visit our individual websites for Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Churchill, Forest Glen and Hadley under the “Schools” tab. Thank you for your interest in District 41!
