We are a kindergarten thru 12th grade district.  Currently, Crescent City Grade School, houses our kindergarten thru 8th grade students.  At the conclusion of the 8th grade year, students have the opportunity to choose a high school. Students may choose between three neighboring districts to attend:  Cissna Park, Iroquois West, and Watseka.

Mission (Why) - To develop active citizens of Crescent City and help children grow in their own capacity to achieve their own personal goals.

Vision (What) - We will provide the community with a school that provides a well-rounded K-8 education for its children. We will provide high-quality instruction, athletics, art enrichment, and social-emotional learning. We will also be financial stewards of the community we serve.
