Leman Middle School was built in 1962 and originally named West Chicago Junior High. The name was later changed to West Chicago Middle School to reflect a change in the organization of the school and the philosophy of education which addresses not only the academic, but the social, psychological and emotional needs of adolescents. In November of 2010, a referendum was passed to renovate and expand the middle school to accommodate sixth grade students, as well as seventh and eighth graders. In the Fall of 2013, the middle school welcomed the first class of sixth graders.
In addition to the renovation and expansion of the building, the middle school received a new name – Leman Middle School of West Chicago, in honor of retired Superintendent Dr. Ed Leman. One of Dr. Leman’s goals during his tenure in District 33 was to offer middle school programming to sixth grade students. He worked hard to make this goal a reality.
Zero Hour Spanish
We are excited to inform you that Spanish as a Foreign Language Level I will be offered to incoming 7 th graders at “zero hour” (6:30-7:10 a.m.). This is being offered in cooperation with Community High School and it is a two-year commitment (7th and 8th grade).
The curriculum, materials and course sequence will follow the Community High School Spanish I course. If your child chooses to enroll in this class and successfully continue through 8th grade, he/she will have the opportunity to be assessed for enrollment in Spanish II as a freshman at Community High School. This will put your child on track for Spanish Advanced Placement (AP) courses in high school. Taking AP courses can give your child many advantages over other college bound students. Please see the attached documents for more information.
