About Craughwell Elementary
Troy Craughwell Elementary School is located in the western part of Will County about 45 miles southwest of Chicago near the intersection of Essington and Black Road in Joliet, Illinois. Our students come from Joliet and Crest Hill. Troy Community Consolidated School District 30-C educates approximately 4400 students in five elementary schools, one intermediate school (grades five and six) and one middle school. The surrounding countryside is growing, and we are seeing an increase in student enrollment similar to our neighbors to the north.
Over 70 staff members are on hand daily to support over 500 Kindergarten through fourth graders. Our outstanding instructional programs are aligned with the Illinois State Standards, and students are assessed regularly using local and state assessment tools.
Throughout the day all children participate in "specials" which include: physical education, music education, art education, technology and library. A thirty-two computer PC Lab is used by students on a regular basis. Keyboarding, word processing, and presentation programs are just a few of the activities that take place in the lab. Digital still and movie cameras, scanners and projectors are also components of our program. To further enhance technology competencies, PC wireless lap tops are available to students in the classrooms as well as a SmartBoard.
Troy Craughwell truly strives to meet the needs of all our children. We are proud of our students, parents, staff and community.
