One District. Infinite Possibilities.

District 196 is a district of choice. We offer boundless educational options for your child. From our early childhood program, to one of our elementary, middle or high schools, we have a variety of options to meet your learner’s passions and needs.

All District 196 schools focus on our triple-A philosophy, which provides a well-rounded education that gives students opportunities to learn and grow in academics, arts and/or athletics.  All of our schools follow common core standards, which support college and career readiness upon graduation. We offer robust programs and schools that focus on STEM, the arts, college-prep, gifted and talented, special education and much more.

At the elementary level, our specialty magnet schools help students build future-ready skills in the arts as well as science, technology, engineering and math. At the middle and high school level, our STEM program surpasses programs nationwide. In addition, we have a school of environmental studies, an Area Learning Center, and two special education schools to support the unique needs of all of our learners.
