Blue and White
7:55 a.m.-2:45 p.m.
Hinsdale Middle School, the largest school in District 181, is proud to have been named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. We believe our Blue Ribbon Award reflects our commitment to our students’ growth not only intellectually, but also as emerging young adults and community members. We promise parents to treat our students as we would treat our own children—with empathy, support and boundless enthusiasm. When they enter the doors of HMS, students find a curriculum that goes above and beyond state and national standards; a rich encore program; and extracurricular options that help students find and develop individual interests and passions. Go Spartans!
Oak School Media Resource Center (MRC) Director Mary Morgan Ryan believes in the power of sharing ideas and is particularly passionate about sharing among her colleagues in school libraries across the country. “It makes all of us stronger,” she notes. “In many places, there is only one librarian per school, so it can be a challenge to share with colleagues in the same position who understand what you do each day, aside from those in your own district.”
Oak School has been honored with the esteemed 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award from the U.S. Department of Education for academic excellence. Oak is the fifth of nine schools in Community Consolidated School District 181 to earn the Blue Ribbon Award, joining Clarendon Hills Middle School (2009), Hinsdale Middle School (2009), Madison School (2009) and The Lane School (2011).
