Bensenville Elementary School District 2 serves a diverse population of 2,150 students in preschool through eighth grade from Bensenville and portions of both Wood Dale and Addison.
The District’s population includes 62 percent low-income families and 33 percent of its students are Limited English Proficient. District 2 has strong student achievement performance as compared to other districts with similar demographics.
Mohawk School was a 2011 National Blue Ribbon School and was an Illinois Spotlight School for five straight years, including 2012. Mohawk School was closed in December 2011, and the community was merged with W.A. Johnson School.
In 2013, 85 percent of teacher survey respondents said District 2 was a good district to have a career in education.
District 2 is a Race to the Top district, one of just two districts in DuPage County. Participating in the initiative puts District 2 at the forefront of school reform measures that all districts in the state will eventually adopt. District 2 is a trailblazer in adopting the Common Core State Standards, implementing the English/language arts standards in 2012, and the math standards in 2013.
District 2 merged four elementary schools into two newly renovated and expanded buildings in 2012. The $50 million construction project replaced aging buildings with state of the art technology and environmental features. A second addition to Tioga School was completed for the 2014-15 school year. Renovations of the entrance and oldest sections of Blackhawk Middle School improved safety and the learning environment. The projects were financed with grants and bonds, and without going for a referendum to raise taxes.
