Education & Library
Served by four public school districts and a number of private and parochial schools, students in Lisle benefit from knowledgeable and committed faculties, curriculums that ensure academic and personal achievement, active parent groups and a wide range of extracurricular programs. Lisle Community Unit School District 202 operates Lisle High School, Lisle Junior High, Schiesher Elementary School and Tate Woods Elementary School.
The district focuses on developing citizens who can think critically and strategically solve problems through engaged, collaborative learning involving real-life challenges. This is achieved through quality teaching, ability groupings in reading and math, updated curriculum with integrated technology, modern schools and teaching tools, intramural programs, inter-school athletic programs, career orientation, gifted education and extracurricular activities (band, chorus, drama, journalism and other special interest clubs). Parents and other Lisle residents join together in Home & School Organizations, the Lisle Foundation for Educational Excellence and Booster groups to help support the district’s mission.
Each year as part of the Chamber’s ongoing commitment to education, the Lisle Area Chamber of Commerce awards a minimum of six $500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who plan to continue their education. Applicants must reside in Lisle and plan to attend a technical or trade school, a business college, or a two or four-year college or university.
Other top-rated school districts serving Lisle students include Naperville Community Unit District 203, High School District 99 of Downers Grove and Elementary District 68 in nearby Woodridge. St. Joan of Arc Elementary School and Benet Academy fulfill the needs of families who are looking for quality private or parochial educational experiences for their children.
Daycare centers and nursery schools are located throughout Lisle. The centers focus on strengthening a child’s learning and social skills while providing childcare for working parents.
The Lisle Library District (777 Front Street – Phone: 630-971-1675) provides students, adults and preschoolers with materials and programs designed to appeal to a variety of interests and research requirements.
In addition to its own extensive collection, the library also accesses the collections of libraries throughout the Suburban Library System.
