Monticello High School

Monticello CUSD #25 | Monticello, Illinois

After completing a community engagement process and passing a referendum, this district’s iconic, historic building received much needed upgrades. This high-achieving district now features facilities that are up to par with their high-quality academic, fine arts and athletic performance standards.

Washington Elementary received a 14-classroom addition to house the district’s PK-3 programs on a secure site, as well as a multipurpose gymnasium and air conditioning.

Monticello High School’s addition includes nine classrooms and a secure entry and administration office. Many of the outdated spaces were brought up to 21st century standards and are ready for future-focused learning for years to come. Students enjoy a reimagined media center, auditorium, classrooms, locker rooms, STEM labs and restroom upgrades, all while keeping the character of the historical facade.
