Welcome To Belleville District #118

district office

Our district proudly serves a majority of the residents residing in the City of Belleville and encompasses more than twenty seven square miles.  Our enrollment is approximately 4,000 students in pre-school through eighth grade.  Our students and staff come from a wide range of socio-economic, cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds, which enriches our community.

We are proud of the numerous national, state, and local achievements of our students and staff.  Our students regularly represent the District at a very high level by their academic, athletic, and fine arts accomplishments.  Our standardized test scores consistently exceed state averages.  Both state and national organizations have recognized our staff and our educational programs as exceptional!  


This weekend the #118 Jazz Ensemble competed in the Illinois State Jazz Invitational.  The band represented our district well.For the 2nd year in a row, the band took 1st place in the Junior High division. In addition, the #118 Jazz Combo competed in the High School Division.  They won 1st place!!

There were 5 overall outstanding soloists awards given for the entire two day festival.  Two of the awards were given to Isaiah Hein and Jeremiah Williams, both 8th graders.  This was the 2nd year in a row that both of these boys have received this award.  They were also the only Junior High players awarded this honor.

In addition, the band was the unanimous selection to be featured in the evening festival celebration concert which was the first time a JH band has ever been given that honor in the history of the festival.    We are proud of their accomplishments!

state soc badge 125pxCongratulations to Abraham Lincoln Elementary School who has been named as a 2016 Illinois State School of Character! This is an amazing accomplishment for this school, especially since they are one of only two schools in Illinois to receive this recognition this year. Their application has been forwarded to Washington D.C. for consideration in the National Schools of Character program. We believe Abraham Lincoln to have strong credentials and has a great chance of receiving the National recognition.
