Our elementary academies are located at Hillside, Kimberlin, and Walnut Glen. Students who meet the minimum academic requirements may apply for the magnet program.

Academically qualified students in grades K-5 are provided accelerated instruction in math and an enriched English language arts, science and social studies curriculum. Qualified students are grouped and taught at appropriate levels in all core areas.

Musically and artistically talented students in grades 2-5 are provided enrichment in their identified areas. Qualified talented students receive additional music and/or art enrichment instruction in “pull-out” classes each week.
