    We will have our first Harvest Day Festival at Illinois School. Students in Kindergarten through fifth grade can wear friendly costumes on this day. Middle school students (sixth through eighth) can wear fall colors.
    Parents, we encourage you remind the students to dress warmly to accommodate for the weather and to participate by taking photos outside while our students engage in their harvest parade. So, please come out and enjoy the festivities!

  • Extended Day and Saturday Enrichment Are Back!


    Illinois School is reopening our extended day and Saturday Enrichment program for our middle school students. Extended Day allows students to expand on their curriculum in a real-world application setting. Students are targeted in the areas of English Language Arts, Math, Science and Technology. If you are interested in your child attending extended day, please fill out this form below. Classes will begin from 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm once we begin our full day schedule.



    On Saturday mornings, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., we will offer classes in Piano, Band, Photography/Videography, Ballet, Modern Dance, Visual Arts, and S.T.E.M.  Our middle schoolers will learn from current and past professionals in the field of performance.  And best of all, there is no cost to you for these courses.   The only thing we ask of our parents, is to take this step in our educational evolution with us. If you are interested in your child attending Saturday Enrichment, please fill out this form below:
