History of Lisle District 202

Since 1972, Lisle Community Unit School District has provided an outstanding educational experience for its students. Prior to 1972, Lisle students were served by two school districts including Lisle Elementary District 70 and High School District 109. In 1962, the Board for each district took a step toward greater efficiency by employing a joint superintendent. ten years later, Unit School District 202 was created by merging the two separate districts, creating the opportunity for our schools to develop a comprehensive educational program which better promoted the growth of our students.

Many residents remember the Old Main Street School in downtown Lisle which served students from 1910 until 1974. After closing as a school, the building then housed village offices including the police station for several more years. The cornerstone for this building is still displayed near the entrance to the current District offices. The current elementary building, Schiesher School, was originally built to also house the Jr. High and the current Jr. High building was created as the first Lisle High School in 1957. District growth in the 1960s and 1970s led to the building of Tate Woods Elementary School on the north side of the district, Meadows Elementary School on the south side of the district, as well as the creation of a new Lisle Senior High School located in what is now the Community Park area. Further expansion of the high school facility occurred in 2002 and 2003 with the addition of an auditorium, a gym, new music rooms and seven new classrooms plus expansion of the school library.

In 1987, the district reorganized the elementary attendance centers, closing the Meadows School and utilizing the clustering concept of placing all sections of a grade level together in the same building. Currently all Kindergarten students attend Schiesher School with the third, fourth and fifth grades. All Early Childhood, PreK, first and second graders attend Tate Woods School, grades 6-8 attend Lisle Jr. High School and 9-12 grades students attend Lisle High School.
