If you're thinking about relocating your family to St. Louis' Illinois suburbs in Madison County, you may be interested in learning more about the area's public school districts.
This is the first in a series of posts that will link you to the Illinois school report cards for the county's districts. Today's topic: Edwardsville District 7.
The Edwardsville school district is large at approximately 185 square miles, encompassing the city of Edwardsville, the village of Glen Carbon, and more rural areas including Prairietown, Dorsey, Hamel, Worden, the Holiday Shores lakeside community and Midway.
In addition to Edwardsville High School and two middle schools -- Lincoln and Liberty -- the district includes 10 elementary schools, three of which were opened in fall 2008. The elementary schools are divided into Pre-K/K through 2nd grade and 3rd grade through 5th grade. Grades 6, 7 and 8 attend Middle School.
An impressive sports complex offers fields for football, baseball, softball, track and more, plus tennis courts and a soon-to-open wrestling center. A swimming and diving facility is on the books for future development.
The district's theater, music and fine arts programs also are highly regarded with band, orchestra, AP art studio and portfolio courses and a publicly acclaimed series of student plays and musicals performed in the high school's theater.
According to District 7, their schools consistently score well above the state average in all subject areas. Click here to link to the Edwardsville School District's profile.
