New to District 15
Welcome to McHenry District 15
Welcome to McHenry Elementary School District 15! Our district serves approximately 4,100 students in grades Pre K-8th grade. We are proud of the quality of education we offer the children and community of McHenry. Furthermore, our most recent annual survey indicates that over 90% of parents and school staff are pleased with the quality of education District 15 provides. Although state funding for education continues to decrease all over the State of Illinois, District 15 has continued to remain financially stable through conservative spending and cost-saving measures. In fact, our district has received the highest rating for school finances four years in a row while improving the quality of education for all of our students.
We have much to be proud of in District 15. District 15's Parkland School was named the number one middle school in the nation for STEM, STEAM, and Innovative Programming at the Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC). In achieving this award, Parkland was chosen among schools from all across the nation as the top middle school that provided the best programming and learning spaces for its students. We were named as one of the top five school districts in the nation for the SETDA award, which celebrates McHenry School District 15’s work creating project-based, digital learning experiences that prepare our students for the future. Also, our Director of Learning and Technology, Dr. Fred Laudadio, was honored by the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) for his dedicated commitment to technology infused learning which has generated visitors to our school district from around the country almost weekly. Finally, District 15 was recognized for the first time in our history by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) receiving the Golden Achievement Award which honors our collaborative relationship with the McHenry community during the creation of our absolutely stunning Makerspaces inclusive of STEM Labs, STEAM Studios, Innovation Centers and Video Production Hubs. Please access our Awards Section for more details on our district’s accomplishments.
