Evanston is an attractive, prosperous city which over 73,000 people call home. Though it is the closest North suburb of Chicago, Evanston has resisted becoming merely a 'bedroom' community, maintaining an independent character marked by a bustling business center, a renowned university and a high-quality public education system. This independence is reflected in Evanston's 150-year history: in the strength and imagination of the people who not only built the city, but also helped shape the course of America.
As one of the most economically diverse older and smaller cities in the Midwest, Evanston is a distinct place with many amenities, opportunities, and a variety of challenges. Collaborative planning with citizens, businesses and institutions is integral to the City's culture, as are public and private partnerships, which promote and achieve economic revitalization. Improving opportunities for all residents, including low and moderate households, is also an important part of the Evanston's community role.
The mission of Community Consolidated School District 65 is to assure a quality, integrated ed
ucational system where all children understand the value of education and become productive members of a multicultural, multiethnic society. This will be accomplished in an environment that supports equity for students, a safe and orderly learning environment, frequent monitoring of student/staff performance, and strong staff, parent, student and community involvement and cooperation. The mission can best be fulfilled by school improvement efforts and shared decision making at the local school level, supported by the Board of Education and Superintendent.
Step into a creative and stimulating environment where students are encouraged and enriched by outstanding teachers and a supportive community. Parents, community volunteers and business leaders show a true generosity of spirit by sharing their experiences and expertise to nurture youngsters.
