Education

Bensenville District 2

Mission statement: Maximize the unique potential of each child by honoring a natural curiosity and igniting a desire to learn.

Belief statements: We believe that student learning is maximized when:

• The child is at the heart of all decisions.

• Partnerships across school, family and community are established and maintained.

• Dedicated and talented educators are recruited, mentored and retained.

• The curriculum is rigorous and innovative.

• Instructional practices ignite a child’s natural curiosity.

• The school environment is physically and emotionally safe.

The focus of the board of education, administrators, teachers and supports staff is united in one goal: to deliver a high-quality education to the children of District 2 and to prepare each student for a world of opportunity as college and career-ready citizens with 21st century skills.

District 2 serves all of Bensenville and portions of Addison and Wood Dale for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. A student enrollment of 2,200 is served by two new state-of-the-art elementary schools and one middle school for grades 6-8. As one of only two Race to the Top districts in DuPage County, District 2 is in the forefront of implementing changes to improve schools that all districts in the state will eventually adopt.
