New Holland-Middletown Elementary School District 88 is a K-8 school district serving the communities of New Holland and Middletown in Logan County, Illinois.  Students graduating from NH-M attend school at Lincoln Community High School in Lincoln, Illinois.

NH-M Elementary #88 is one of the highest performing school districts in the area, both academically and financially.  Students consistently meet or exceed state standards in Reading and Math.  In 2012, 100% of the all 8th grade students met or exceeded state standards at the time of graduation (Source).  For the past few years, NH-M has been awarded "Financial Recognition" by the Illinois State Board of Education, which is the highest financial rating acquired by Illinois school districts. 

NH-M continues to explore new and innovative methods of delivering instruction, including Encore (enriched core) classes for middle grades, deploying Google Chromebooks and Apple iPads to all students, and offering individualized instruction to both remedial and gifted students.

Explore our new website, which will continue to provide updates on the many positive things occurring in our school district.  It's a great day to be a MUSTANG!  #makingadifference
