The Edwardsville Community Unit School District, which encompasses approximately 185 square miles of territory in the suburban St. Louis area, is one of the oldest and proudest school districts in the state of Illinois. The first public school in Edwardsville, the Dale School, opened in the 1864, beginning a tradition of excellence that endures today. The school district and the community grew and flourished together as more elementary schools were added, and a separate high school was built. Eventually the country schools from the rural areas surrounding Edwardsville joined to form District 7 as we know it today.
Historic landmarks include Hadley House, established in 1875, which houses the District’s administrative service center and Columbus School, built in 1886, which is the District’s oldest school and the oldest school building in continuous use in Madison County. The District’s heritage of excellence in education is reflected today in the outstanding achievements of all its schools.
