We serve parts of Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Glen Ellyn, Lombard and Wheaton.

Our graduates attend Glenbard West High School in Glenbard District 87.
The District 41 Learner Characteristics guide everything we do within our learning community, and represent our goals for all learners, both children and adults. Our students do well on national, state and local measures of achievement, performing in the top 6% of the state, according to a 2013 independent study. Our comprehensive curriculum is similar to that of other high-performing districts, and 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. In addition, Hadley Junior High students receive instruction in Technology, Health, Life Skills, Study Skills and Foreign Language. Hadley also offers a range of electives; examples of these are band, orchestra, drama, cooking and lego-robotics.
