HINSDALE MIDDLE SCHOOL
Community Consolidated School District 181
Hinsdale Middle School is proud to be a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School. 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 treat our students as we would treat our own children—with empathy, support and boundless enthusiasm. Go Spartans!
Students have attended school at the intersection of 3rd Street and Garfield Avenue in downtown Hinsdale since 1886. It was first the site of an all-boys school in the late 1800s, Hinsdale High School in the 1920s, and the former Hinsdale Middle School from 1976-2018. In January 2019, the tradition continued as District 181 opened the doors of the current Hinsdale Middle School at 100 S. Garfield Ave. Thanks to the successful passage of a referendum, the building process began in November 2016.
When students enter the doors of HMS, they 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 their individual interests and passions.
Dear Parents and Staff,
We wanted to inform you of an accident in downtown Clarendon Hills earlier this morning where a truck crossing at Prospect was hit by a train. We were notified that this caused the car to roll over and catch on fire.
We wanted to let you know that all of our buses that traverse nearby routes arrived safely and were not affected. Additionally, we have determined that all of our students and staff arrived safely as well, though we know that some had unfortunately witnessed the accident during their commute. Staff is watching for any distress in students and will alert our school social workers as needed. Counseling will be available throughout the day for any students or staff who need to process the event.
In addition, we were notified by the Village of Clarendon Hills that the train track crossing at Prospect is closed to traffic and pedestrians until further notice. As a result, there may be a delay for some buses and students returning home from school this afternoon. They have been asked to use the west Hinsdale crossing or the Cass Avenue crossing in Westmont.
Please contact your school principal or my office if you have questions or concerns.
Dr. Hector Garcia
