Full of history and tradition, Big Hollow School District has been teaching the children of Ingleside, Fox lake, Round Lake, Volo, Lakemoor, McHenry and unincorporated Lake County since 1836. As the oldest school district operating this long, they have successfully focused on the fundamentals of learning while adapting to the best practices developed over the past century. Although time has changed since the days of a one room school house, where teachers were paid in meat and produce, the small town friendliness of Big Hollow School District remains.
The communities that make up Big Hollow School District have grown considerably and in recent years it has been the fastest growing district in Lake County. To accommodate the huge gains in population, all three of the schools are now located on 62 acres giving parents a convenient location for all of their children to learn while providing the community with public facilities to utilize in off-hours.
Their mission is simple: Big Hollow School District will foster excellence in education so that its students will reach their full potential in an ever-changing society. This philosophy of improving our future has existed for many years and continues to this day.
