About Us


Located in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, Bremen Community High School District 228 is comprised of 29 square miles in Bremen Township and serves the communities of Midlothian, Posen, Tinley Park, Markham, Hazel Crest, Country Club Hills, and Oak Forest.

Bremen District 228 serves over 5,000 students and employs 613 full- and part-time staff members. Bremen High School, in Midlothian, opened its doors to students in September 1953. Since then, as the suburbs grew, District 228 opened three additional schools. Tinley Park High School opened in 1961; Hillcrest High School, in Country Club Hills, opened in 1967; and Oak Forest High School opened in 1970.

The Board of Education is proud of the quality education that is offered to students who reside in Bremen High School District 228. Many children and grandchildren of our original students are now attending district schools. Additionally, the Board employs many staff members who are alumni of the district.

All who are a part of the Bremen District 228 school community take pride in our school district. When you visit us, physically or via this website, we know you will recognize that pride.

Our mission is to provide each student with core values, knowledge, and skills in order to thrive academically, socially, emotionally, and physically in our diverse world; to develop character, and to achieve full potential in one's personal and professional life.

Through high academic standards, accountability, and a safe, caring environment, we will challenge our students to become self-directed learners and global citizens with the ability to utilize literacy skills and competencies to enrich their lives within the workplace, community, and family.
