Betsy Ross State of the School (April 14, 2021)
Betsy Ross Elementary School, located in Prospect Heights School District 23, is a grade level center, which houses approximately 380 second and third grade students. Students come from the surrounding suburbs of Prospect Heights, Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect and Wheeling. Betsy Ross Elementary School offers a unique educational experience designed to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of students. Betsy Ross is "a great place for a child to grow" and truly empowers children to achieve excellence.
Currently, Betsy Ross Elementary School has approximately 50 staff members working collaboratively to ensure all students meet their potential. Educators lead students through the journey of their primary years, constructing knowledge and meaning, while positively supporting students to develop into outstanding young citizens, who are respectful, responsible, and supportive of a safe learning environment.
One of the most important elements of Betsy Ross’s success is its parent community. The Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (EPTO) works tirelessly to provide learning experiences both in and out of the classroom. The PTO supports assemblies, holiday parties, field trips, curricular needs, social events, and many other exciting opportunities that enhance the school environment.
