By fostering a safe, nurturing and equitable environment, CHSD 218 enables all individuals to thrive in a diverse learning community, rich in opportunity for growth, and to reflect on challenging, real-life problems in a way that inspires them to prepare for the future and to contribute to our evolving world.
Dwight D. Eisenhower High School, Harold L. Richards High School, and Alan B. Shepard High School offer comprehensive educational experiences, including career and college preparatory courses. They also offer a vast array of extracurricular academic, arts, service, and leadership clubs and organizations and athletic teams.
Delta and Summit Learning Centers are the district’s alternative programs that offer a wide array of supports for our general education and special education students who need innovative programming to meet their diverse needs. Our district is committed to offering in-district programming that helps students with issues such as attendance, credit deficiency, and a need for increased structure. Delta and Summit are designed to support the education of students beyond the scope of a comprehensive high school.
The Adult Transition Program serves 18-22 year old adults with disabilities. Driven by individual student transition plans, this program offers academic, vocational, and functional supports in order to prepare the students for the next phase of their adult lives. The Adult Transition Program partners with community agencies to offer our students a wide variety of social, vocational, and recreational experiences.
The Illinois State Board of Education has awarded District 218 with Financial Recognition, the highest possible fiscal rating, for fourteen consecutive years.
