About Our School


The school is located on the south side of Danville, next to the famed Danville Stadium, the original home of the farm team for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

The school was originally built in 1963 as one of three junior high schools.  The school hosted students in 7th through 9th grade and a staff of 60. In 1980, South View changed to a middle school concept. In the spring of 2016, D118 re-organized the district and the school now is host to all of Danville's fifth and sixth grade students. 

The school offers all core curricular classes such as math, science, social studies, and language arts. The school also offers, as part of the daily schedule, art, band, orchestra, choir, technical arts, Project Lead The Way, computers, and physical education.

South View also has a proud history of excellence in extracurricular sports and clubs. Our extracurricular activities will help students build a foundation of skills and enrich the learning process. 

South View Upper Elementary School and Danville District 118 are committed to providing a sound and well-rounded education for all students.
