Education

Grades K through High School

A primary concern of the Village is the education of its children.  The school system strives to educate the whole person, both in and out of the classroom.  The schools are staffed with highly qualified teachers.  Each student is inspired to strive for optimum development of his or her unique inherent skills and talents.

The Village is serviced by three elementary and three high school districts.
