About South Holland School District 151

South Holland School District 151 is a Pre-K through 8th grade school district that serves approximately 1700 children from four communities.  The district operates four schools that are organized as grade centers.  Taft School, in Harvey, begins our students' educational journey from Pre-Kindergarten through first grade.  Eisenhower School and Madison School are located in South Holland.  Eisenhower is our second and third grade center while Madison educates students in fourth and fifth grade.  Finally, Coolidge Middle School, in Phoenix, serves our sixth through eighth graders. 

Our school district strives to balance academic, physical, social, and emotional needs so that students experience all sectors of learning.  The leadership team is making a concerted effort to delve into the Common Core learning standards to create lessons connecting learning through authentic means.  In conjunction with our standards-based curriculum, assessments (both formative and summative) provide feedback to students, staff, and parents about information obtained through our curriculum.  This information forms future goals to support the learning of our students. 

South Holland School District 151 has made a commitment to provide all students an excellent education.  We invite all students, parents, and community members to reinforce this commitment by being involved in the schools and working together with our staff to provide the best educational opportunities for all students.
