Kildeer Elementary School in District 96
Kildeer Countryside is one of four elementary schools in District 96. Located at 3100 Old McHenry Road in Long Grove, the student body is a mix of Kildeer, Buffalo Grove, and Long Grove residents.
As part of an ongoing series here on the blog, I want to share three quick facts about each elementary school + a bonus local food recommendation. For more detailed information, you can check out Kildeer Countryside Elementary School's website here.
Number of students reported in the 2018-2019 school year.
Blue Ribbon Recipient
In 2012, Kildeer Countryside Elementary School was recognized by the United States Department of Education as one of 342 public schools to receive the National Blue Ribbon Awards.
Arne Duncan, the U.S. Secretary of Education at the time, noted about the selected schools:
"Schools honored with the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award are committed to accelerating student achievement and preparing students for success in college and careers. Their work reflects the conviction that every child has promise and that education is the surest pathway to a strong, secure future."
The students put together a publication called Paw Prints that functions like a school newspaper. Articles range from interviews to book and game reviews. Great opportunity for kids interested in writing.
Looking for a great wood-fired pizza? Check out Joanie's Pizzeria of Long Grove, which is walking distance from the school and a family friendly restaurant with outdoor seating. In addition to delicious pizza, we also love their broasted chicken!!
