What makes Elmhurst United a Special Place to Work?

hands in a collaboration group


  • Each core-subject teacher has a course-alike planning partner with whom to plan units and daily lessons. Planning partners meet weekly during the school day using a common prep period.
  • Grade level teams meet weekly to align common practices, procedures, and student supports. To facilitate this teamwork, students are cohorted into "colleges" that have a common team of teachers.
