|The History of Thomasboro High School
Thomasboro (population 1,233) is located in east-central Illinois about ten miles north of Champaign-Urbana. Thomasboro is located in the north-central portion of Champaign County. U.S. Route 45 is the main roadway to and from town. Interstate Highway 57 runs by the town’s western edge. There is also a “Stream” that flows by the south and west sides of Thomasboro. The Illinois Central Gulf Railroad runs through town as well.
The history of Thomasboro and its school system are in need of research. It is our belief that Thomasboro had a school in place by the late 1800s. We are told Thomasboro once supported its own high school. Our guess is that Thomasboro High School probably served the community for fifty years or more. At some point Thomasboro High School closed and the students of Thomasboro were bused to nearby Rantoul for their high school education. This arrangement continues today.
Thomasboro continues to support its own grade school for students in grades K – 8. If you have ANY information to help shed the light on the history of Thomasboro High School please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org,
