Geneva School District has been ranked the 12th Best School District in Illinois by Niche (formerly College Prowler).

Geneva has 5,959 students attending 10 schools in grades PK and K-12. According to state standards, 92% of students in this district are considered proficient in math and/or reading.

“We are very pleased to receive this recognition,” said Superintendent Dr. Kent Mutchler. “This award reflects high expectations and the importance of quality staff doing excellent work and caring parents working together to help all of our students succeed.”
