Principal's Message

Welcome to Algonquin Middle School.

I hope all of our returning seventh and eighth grade students, as well as our new sixth graders, are as excited about our new school year as I am. Algonquin has a lot to offer its students, from clubs and sports to music performance and drama. Along with our academic and extracurricular programs, Algonquin also offers the chance to build lasting relationships with classmates, teachers, and staff. Our diverse population ensures a “real world” experience, one that reflects all of the strengths of the Des Plaines community. Come and be a part of Algonquin pride!
