Lyons School District 103


The Lyons School District 103 in Illinois serves students from 5 elementary schools and 1 middle school, providing education from kindergarten through 8th grade. The district's student population is predominantly Hispanic, and all schools have high percentages of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating significant socioeconomic challenges faced by the community.

Among the standout schools in the district, Edison Elementary School stands out for its exceptional academic performance, with significantly higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math compared to the district and state averages. In contrast, Washington Middle School has lower proficiency rates than the elementary schools, suggesting a need to investigate factors contributing to the disparities in academic achievement across the district.

Another area of concern is the district's high chronic absenteeism rates, which range from 29.1% at Home Elementary School to 49.3% at Costello School, significantly higher than the state average. Addressing the root causes of absenteeism should be a priority for the district, as chronic absenteeism is linked to lower academic achievement and other negative outcomes.
