Plenty of great things are happening in the Lake Villa 41 School District!
All four schools are highly ranked by the State of Illinois as Commendable. This means that there are no underperforming student groups at any school. Not only are the overall achievement gaps significantly less than the gaps across the state, but each year dedicated teachers, support staff, and administrators work to further narrow the achievement gaps between low income and non-low income students, between Black and White students, and between Hispanic and White students. Lake Villa 41 prides itself on the strength of its routinely updated curriculum, 1:1 technology initiative, and effective program interventions.
District 41 also recognizes that educating well-rounded children is more than merely offering rigorous core academics. We believe that Social-Emotional Learning is just as important. This why after two years of study, the entire staff across the district unanimously adopted the Leader in Me program based on Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Lake Villa 41 is committed to creating a culture where each child is capable, each child is gifted, and each child is a leader.
Our financial data show that Lake Villa 41 delivers a quality education for far less money than neighboring districts. In fact, for the past ten years, Lake Villa per pupil expenditures have been approximately $3,000 LESS per student per year than the state average. Lake Villa 41 has obtained the highest financial profile from the State Board of Education for the past 14 years. The district's credit rating has been upgraded by Moody's three times since 2001. And, there is more good news! All the district's bond debt will be paid in full in 2019.
