Principal John Oliver

  • Clinton principal

    High expectations increase learning. All children need to be challenged and encouraged to do their best. As members of Clinton School community, we can combine our talents and resources to advance the academic growth of each one of our children. 

    Communication is an important part of working together. We will, of course, communicate during the traditional conference times and school programs, but our children and our school will be better served if we keep communications open at other times as well. Please feel free to write, call, or set up a meeting time with us to share any ideas, questions, or concerns you may have. 

    I can be reached at and our main office line is (847) 888-7045. 

    On a personal note, it is a pleasure working with students and the fine staff here at Clinton. It is exciting to be able to watch youngsters grow and to be part of that growing process. It is also a pleasure to see parents involved in our school and in the education of our children.
