The village is served by two elementary school districts, one high school district, and several private and parochial school systems.

Our first public school was a white frame structure at Ridge Road and Indiana Avenue with 40 students in attendance. 
This was replaced in 1893 by a two story brick building, Indiana Avenue School.

From 1920 to 1924, Lansing students attended high school in this building until they started attending Thornton Fractional (T.F.) in 1924.

2012-2013 School Report Cards for District 158

Each year, the State Board of Education releases school report cards for each public school in the state. The 2012-2013 report cards include student scores on the Illinois Standards Achievement and Prairie State Achievement tests, and ACTs, demographic information on students and teachers, and financial information on school districts. Private and parochial schools do not take state achievement tests.
