This is a public school ran like a private one. The Superintendent is constantly seeking new grant money in order to enhance the educational experience for the children. The school is the only one in the area with a Spanish program. It is the jewel in the west end of Belleville Illinois.

Way behind the times...the school still lives in the "Leave It To Beaver" era. If you're planning to move to the area, private school is the way to go (either Blessed Sacrament or GFA). Things need to change or Ward, June, and the Beave will be relocating shortly.

Signal Hill is an excellent school with great programs for all students. High level of parent and PTO involvement and compassion from teachers. An annual school play and unique experiences provide the atmosphere for growth and lifelong learning.
