The District’s administrative office is housed in the Rosalie Jones Administration Center located at 335 W. Wilson Street in Batavia. Administrative services are organized under four divisions that report to the Superintendent. These divisions work collaboratively to provide excellent customer service to all stakeholders and constituents.
Batavia is among the oldest communities in the Fox Valley, having been settled in 1833, a full year before the City of Chicago. Once considered the fringe of the Chicago metro area, Batavia has matured into one of the premier communities of the western suburbs. Batavia Public School District 101 was founded in 1911 when the east side and west side school districts of Batavia consolidated. In recent years, District has received recognition for outstanding performance from Chicago Magazine, the Chicago Sun-Times, and the College Board. It has a well-deserved reputation for excellence and is recognized as one of the primary reasons for residential housing growth within the community.
