Welcome to the Mountaintop Project

  • We are excited to invite you to join the Round Lake Area Schools District #116 Mountaintop Project. Registration in the program will enroll your newborn in the district from birth. The focus of the Mountaintop Project is to empower parents and ensure your child will be kindergarten-ready. Through district and community resources, and support from our Child Development Liaison, you will be provided with the necessary tools to be successful as your child's first teacher.

    Please contact Erika Quezada to learn more information about the Mountaintop Program.
