"Children First" is the top priority at Jane Addams School. With an enrollment of close to 300 students, the staff firmly believes in making learning exciting, stimulating and rewarding for each child. One of our strengths is found in our diversity, with a student body that comes from all over the world. Another strength is our parent and community involvement.  We welcome you to join us!

We are extremely proud of our students, parents, and dedicated staff at Jane Addams Elementary School, who work together toward enabling every child to have a successful school experience. If you have any questions, contact the classroom teachers or reach out to me through a visit, a phone call (309-743-8146) or by email, [email protected].
