• Welcome to Maercker District 60!Superintendent

    Welcome to Maercker School District 60! We are proud to be an amazing educational organization located in the southeastern portion of DuPage County. Our district serves portions of Westmont, Willowbrook, Clarendon Hills, Hinsdale, Darien and Unincorporated DuPage County.

    Originally opened as a one room schoolhouse in 1855, Maercker D60 has grown to three schools with almost 1,500 students as homes replaced farmland. One common theme over all these years has been our community’s support and passion for public education and the desire to do what is best for every single student in our care. 

    For those who may not know me, I am Dr. Sean Nugent and I have proudly served as Superintendent since 2016. I am no stranger to this district as I was also Principal of Westview Hills Middle School from 2010-2016 so I know the strengths of our district and the communities that we serve. I earned my BA degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, my MA from Governors State University and completed my Doctoral program in Education at Illinois State University. 

    Before joining Maercker D60, I taught in Chicago Public Schools and Summit HIll School District 161, and served as Assistant Principal and District Curriculum Coordinator in Troy 30-C. In my free time, I am usually spending time with my wife Maureen and our three kids. I love coaching my kids on their sport teams, playing golf when time permits, cooking, and being out on the water. I am also a huge fan of the White Sox, Blackhawks and Fighting Illini football and basketball.

    Maercker D60 provides a state of the art instructional program, a differentiated curriculum to support the learning needs of all students, integrated technology to enhance engaged learning, and opportunities for social growth both inside and outside of the classroom. Guided by the work of our strategic plan adopted in 2023, our team of educators is working to ensure that every student gets the tools they need to succeed each and every day. 

    I am excited to continue to lead this team and serve this amazing community that is so passionate about ensuring the needs of ALL students are met!
