Our Mission

Bottenfield's mission is to guide all students to acheive their best academically, socially, and emotionally.

Our History

Bottenfield was built in 1955 and named after E. O. Bottenfield, a popular Champaign junior high school teacher. Bottenfield is an inviting school community for all students, including many students whose parents also attended Bottenfield. This welcoming atmosphere results in a great sense of belonging and loyalty to the school. Bottenfield underwent a $6.3 million expansion and renovation during the 2013-2014 school year. The new features of the building include updated technology, front entrance and security system upgrades, separate gym/cafeteria spaces, updated classrooms, and improved ADA accessibility.
