The middle school program features grade-level teams, elective and exploratory offerings, and extra-curricular activities. We serve the communities of Hinsdale and Clarendon Hills, as well as parts of Burr Ridge, Oak Brook and Willowbrook. Support for the District is demonstrated in many ways, such as active participation in parent organizations, response to requests for volunteers, and the exceptional work of our D181 Foundation.
