Leyden High School District 212 consists of two high schools, East and West Leyden, and is located right next to O'Hare airport in Illinois. We serve the communities of Franklin Park, Leyden Township, Melrose Park, Northlake, River Grove, Rosemont, and Schiller Park. We have been fully 1:1 since the 2012-2013 school year with all 3,400 of our students using Dell Chromebooks.
After paying our costs for this event, which does not include paying any Leyden administrators, all of the money goes directly to our Leyden students to subsidize the cost of SAT prep classes, AP exams, and certifications in various areas.
