Enhancing the learning experiences of District 200 students for 20+ years

The NEW 200 Foundation works directly with District 200 to bridge the gap between budget limitations and the desire to expand educational opportunities for our students.

NEW 200 is inspiring students to become enthusiastic and engaged learners by:

  • Awarding "Support Our Students" grants for new programs, innovative teaching methods, and updating classroom technology
  • Supporting S.T.E.M. initiatives (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)
  • Providing additional student enrichment opportunities
  • Recognizing excellence in teaching



Innovation is the key to improvement

Being innovative is about looking beyond what we currently do well, identifying the great ideas of tomorrow and putting them into practice.




S.T.E.M. teaching methods prepare students for 21st century careers

Teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics together, rather than as separate subjects, engages students in creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication skills. Students gain hands-on experiences, learn how to take risks, and realize that it's okay to make mistakes.





Enrichment opportunities build character and create socially responsible adults

Research has shown that children who grow up with strong, positive values are happier and do better in school. They are also better able to balance their personal wants and needs against those of others.



65% of today’s grade schoolers will hold jobs that don’t even exist yet.
They'll use technologies that haven't been invented
to find solutions for problems that haven't emerged yet.

By combining the above initiatives with a quality District 200 education,
we are inspiring 21st century leaders.
