I post new blog posts every Monday and I wouldn’t want you to miss out. In the description down below I will
Lockport has a total of five school districts and ten schools, that is not including Homer Township which is also in Lockport but depending on your boundaries you may or may not fall into that district. For today I’m not including Homer schools in my post. We will do a separate post on Homer Glen schools in Homer Township next week, so stayed tuned for that.
The first school district I want to talk about is district 89, that is the Fairmont School District That is one school that houses pre-k through eighth grade, totaling about three hundred and ten students. Great schools.org has rated them a two out of ten. It is located at 735 Green Garden Place in Lockport.
The next School District I want to talk about is district 90. That is the Taft school district located at 1605 Washington Street in Lockport. That’s Kindergarten through 8th grade with roughly three hundred and fifty students in about thirty to thirty-five students per class. Greatschools.org has rated them a five out of ten.
The next district is district 91. District 91 has two schools. One is the elementary and then one is the junior high. The elementary is Milne Elementary and that houses about 300 students for kindergarten through third grade. Greatschools.org has rated Milne Grove Elementary five out of ten. Then they will move on to Kelvin Grove middle school which houses about three hundred and seventy students. Kelvin Grove is for grades four through eighth. Greatschools.org has rated Kelvin Grove a six out of ten.
District 92 is actually called Will County District 92, that is in Lockport. They have a total of four schools. The first school that the students would attend is kindergarten to first grade. That is Walsh school located at 514 McGregor in Lockport. They have approximately 300 students at this school. Greatschools.org has not rated this school.
The next school is Reed school and that’s for grades 2nd and 3rd. That school has about three hundred and four students. Greatschools.org has rated this school a nine out of ten.
The next school is Ludwig school. That’s for grades fourth and fifth. Ludwig school has approximately 387 students. Greatschools.org has rated them a seven out of ten. Oak Prairie Junior High is for grades 6th, 7th, and 8th. Oak Prairie Junior High has about 573 students. Greatschools.org has rated them an 8 out of 10.
The last district that I want to tell you about is the high school district. Now all of these schools feed into the high school which is district 205. The high school has two separate campuses.
The central campus, which was built in 1910, has been providing education since. The central building is where the Freshman will go to school. The East Campus is for grades 10 through 12. There’s approximately 3,600 students that attend Lockport High School. Great schools.org has rated them a nine out of ten. I hope this information was helpful for you. If you would like further information about the local schools you can view information on illinoisreportcard.com or greatschools.org
Please make sure that if you are looking to move to a home for a specific school or district that you call that district YOURSELF to confirm that it is in fact in district and there are no current plans to change boundaries of the schools in the near future. There is always that possibility but it’s good to confirm with the district themselves as that’s where the changes will be made.
