Improvements at all District Schools:

  • Hodgkins Elementary School,
  • Spring Avenue Elementary School,
  • Seventh Avenue Elementary School,
  • Ideal Elementary School, and
  • Gurrie Middle School

In response to growing enrollment, curriculum needs, and after-school activities, LaGrange School District 105 embarked on a two phase District-wide facilities upgrading initiative.  Long heralded as “A Great Place To Live, A Great Place To Learn,” the communities serving District 105 have witnessed enhancements at Ideal Elementary, Seventh Avenue Elementary, Hodgkins Elementary, Spring Elementary, and Gurrie Middle Schools.

Key improvements included: secure main entries at all schools; classroom remodeling and additions; upgraded and remodeled media centers; upgraded administrative spaces; and a gymnasium addition at Gurrie. The completed work is a representation of a collaborative approach between LaGrange School District 105 and DLA Architects aimed at creating the optimum environments for learning in the 21st Century.
