Niles Community Schools
Building a Foundation for Our Future
We are located in the southwest corner of Michigan, eight miles from the University of Notre Dame and less than a two-hour travel to downtown Chicago. The shores of Lake Michigan are about twenty-five minutes away. Within the ninety square miles of the district, we have a nice mix of urban, suburban, and rural settings. Diversity is one of our district's strengths with a student population of 15% African-American, 80% Caucasian, and around 5% Hispanic. Approximately 40% of our students are eligible for free and reduced lunch.

The district has almost 4,000 students. We are the largest district in our area and we offer more sports, more extracurricular activities, and more academic opportunities than any other district. The district is small enough to make personal attention to students a priority.

The 9th through 12th grade high school has 1100 students and offers many Advanced Placement and online courses. Our high school has been recognized as a statewide leader in career pathways and models a program preparing students for the next level.


    Here's what our parents are saying about us!
    Our son has thrived being a New Tech student.  I am amazed daily at how hard the facilitators and staff work and the support they give him.  He is challenged in a way that really fits his learning style and when he struggles he always has a safety net to fall back on.  His New Tech training really shows when he is out in public meeting new people.  He is beginning to show a great deal of confidence and becoming quite a young man. ~ Amy Evans, parent of 10th grade New Tech student
    One of our greatest decisions as parents was sending our son to Eastside Connections School.  We have never seen a group of kids so eager to learn and so happy about going to school each day.  We are excited about the continued growth of ECS and look forward to doing our part to help!  Thank you ECS, for being you! ~ Bryan and Shannon Williams, parents of 4th grade ECS student
