Northbrook School District 27 is a school district located in Northbrook, Illinois.[1]


Northbrook District 27 is a school district in Northbrook, Illinois. It consists of three schools, Hickory Point, Shabonee, and Wood Oaks Junior High School. The district used to have a fourth school, Grove but it was shut down and destroyed in June 2010 after a decision by the board of education[2]. Hickory point and Shabonee are elementary schools which run from Kindergarten to 5th grade. After 5th grade, students are transferred to Wood Oaks Junior High school, which teach grades 6-8. The district prides itself in providing students with many accommodations such as disabilities, or accelerated learning. As well as that, the district provides students with some of the newest technology, and students are provided with a Lenovo Chromebook in 6th grade to take home with them for schoolwork.[3]
