The Harlem Consolidated School District serves the communities of Loves Park, Machesney Park, and the southern Harlem Consolidated High School - circa 1911portion of Roscoe. The District has an enrollment of approximately 7,750 students.  The District was established in 1910 when four rural districts petitioned their trustees to consolidate in order to provide a quality education for students.  Facilities include one high school, one middle school, and nine elementary schools.

The Harlem School District is a place where you can form a strong partnership with your child’s educators.  Through this partnership, your child has a better chance to succeed in school and in life. Students, parents, teachers and staff work in partnership with the business community responding to the students’ needs to enhance future accomplishments.

The Village of Machesney Park maintains a seat on the Village Board for a Harlem High School student liaison.  The student liaison provides the board, and the meeting’s attending citizens, updates on the happenings of the Harlem High School community, and gives voice to the students, parents, and overall Harlem High School Community.  For more information on this position and how localVMP 2007 Student Liasons Breanna and Amanda students cane get involved, please contact the Village Clerk.
