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!
In the fall of 2013, District 181 embarked on a five-year curriculum renewal cycle for mathematics. In year one (2013-14 school year), the District 181 Math Committee worked to research best practices, gain a deep understanding of the Common Core, develop a philosophy statement, and write curriculum aligned to the new standards. In the spring of 2014, the Math Committee completed the last phase of year one by recommending materials to be piloted for the first semester of the 2014-15 school year. The recommended materials were presented at the May 27, 2014 Board of Education meeting. We have established new communications to engage families in the math pilot progress, including adding a new section of our website, available here. The page includes links, resources, and FAQs.
District 181 has received the Association of School Business Officials International’s (ASBO) Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting award for having met or exceeded the program’s high standards for financial reporting and accountability. The District was recognized for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ending 2013.
