Our Vision


    The English Language Learner Services of North Chicago CUSD 187 is designed to prepare students to communicate effectively in English and achieve post-secondary success while valuing and celebrating every student’s culture and language in partnership with family and community.

    Students are nurtured and motivated to be multilingual, globally successful, culturally diverse, and independent thinkers.
