D79 Vision and Mission


District 79 students are empowered and equipped with the knowledge and skills to navigate life and achieve their college, career, and personal goals. They leverage opportunities, manage challenges, and advocate for themselves and others.


We welcome each student, affirm their backgrounds and identities, and draw on the strengths they bring to the District 79 community. We provide each student with personalized learning experiences and support systems they need to achieve success in school and beyond.
