Students participated in a breakout focusing on self-awareness and responsible decision-making. Students worked as a team to unlock four locks and earn pieces of their class's Westies in Action poster. It was so much fun!



Congratulations to the West School Student Council for its donation of 28 boxes to the New Trier Township Food Pantry in Winnetka. This effort aligns with District 35's core priority of offering students opportunities to give back and grow as engaged, global citizens.


We support physical health in our schools by encouraging healthy lifestyles and wellness for all. 


West School students are taught explicit Social Emotional Learning with the Second Step Curriculum. Students learn how to recognize kindness and act kindly toward others, and how to develop empathy by learning strategies to take others' perspectives.

Celebrating Our Community

In the late 1970’s, the Glencoe Board of Education chose to reorganize the district from four neighborhood schools to three age-centered buildings. This decision was based on the belief that the District is best served by bringing together all students of a grade level. 

District 35 educates the whole child to...

…maximize creative and critical thinking skills.
…fully challenge and realize physical, social, and cognitive abilities.
…nurture unique learning styles, interests, strengths, and pace.
…provide a solid foundation for the next phase of education and for learning throughout life.

Celebrating Our Community

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

District 35 views education as experiences best served by coordinated efforts of parents and the school staff.  Parent involvement through generous support of the Glencoe PTO, volunteers in classrooms and ongoing communication with teachers and school personnel are welcomed and encouraged.  Teachers in grade level and/or subject area teams work closely side-by-side in their planning, decision-making, implementation, and assessment.  Together, we nurture our greatest natural resource – our children.

Growing Every Heart and Mind

The District 35 curriculum is broadly based, reflecting an interest in the academic, social, emotional, artistic, and physical development of children. Problem-solving and decision-making are encouraged through the curriculum and informal situations, such as recess or class meetings in the lower grades and integrated activities at the upper levels.
