Built in 1957, Copeland Manor School is a kindergarten through fifth-grade neighborhood elementary school located at 801 South Seventh Avenue in Libertyville, Illinois. Three separate additions have expanded Copeland to the present size, including a new front entrance and Learning Center built in 1997, a cafeteria built in 2009, as well as, additional classrooms and a new gym in 2017.
With an approximate enrollment of 400 students, grade level teams are divided into three or four classrooms. From interactive classroom lessons to multi-age buddy activities, students at Copeland have boundless opportunities to learn and grow both academically and socially. Throughout the school day, students can be found broadcasting announcements, communicating their ideas, recording evidence of their learning, building in the makerspace, designing inquiry projects, explaining math strategies, and helping one another. Along with engaging day-to-day classroom activities, Copeland students also have opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities such as the Variety Show and Family Math and Science Nights. Students in 4th and 5th grade can participate in band or orchestra; Chorus Club, Drama Club, Sign Language Club; and intramural sports such as volleyball, basketball, and cheerleading.
The Copeland community is fortunate to have parents actively involved in the education of their children. Parents have described Copeland as a high achieving focused neighborhood school that nurtures students while challenging and differentiating learning. Parent volunteers are welcomed into classrooms to assist with academics and special events. The Copeland Family Association (CFA) organizes numerous events throughout the school year that benefit the students of Copeland. ArtFest, Exploration Day, Famous Artist presentations and assemblies are just a sample of the highly anticipated school events made possible by the CFA.

While utilizing the District 70 Applications of Learning, the Copeland community focuses on continuous improvement and student growth to prepare our students to live and work in the 21st century.
