Welcome from the Principal

We are excited about providing a high-quality elementary public school option to Waukegan families. We opened our doors to the Waukegan community in 2015. By 2021, we will proudly educate scholars from kindergarten through 8th grade. Our commitment to LEARN’s five core values and providing families in the Waukegan community with a college preparatory elementary education is our utmost priority. Our vision is for all LEARN 9 scholars to become lifelong learners that are critical-thinkers, global citizens, and appreciative of a multicultural society.
