In District 103, we believe a collaborative school community, which employs best educational practices, involves parents, reaches out to the community, and relies on high quality leadership teams, is what forms successful students.
Our instructional program supports our mission through a curriculum that focuses on skill development in the core academic areas of reading/language arts, mathematics, science, and social science. The curriculum also develops students’ skills in writing, technology, and social and emotional learning; and it currently extends to music, fine arts, world language (Spanish), physical education/health, family and consumer science, clubs, athletics and community service.

District 103 differentiates instruction to meet individual student needs. This unique approach to instruction (through our Enrichment Learning Model, REACH) continually engages students in stimulating and challenging learning activities at all levels. We also utilize a Response to Intervention (RtI) plan that ensures effective academic support for students through research-based teaching strategies and materials.
The professional family of School District 103 is committed to providing a sound, high-quality educational program reflecting best practices within our Leaders in Learning vision. We focus on continuous improvement and lifelong learning for both students and staff. Our commitment to be Leaders in Learning requires us to prioritize student academic performance, while ensuring that we meet the individual needs of all students and assist them in becoming productive members of our global society. Furthermore, we recognize the importance of helping our students to develop skills that will be needed for success in the 21st Century.
