Every school on the Illinois High School Glory Days site had a beginning and ending point. The following list is to show all the schools located in Southern Illinois on our site and what became of them after they closed.

For Southern Illinois, the area south of Interstate 72 from the Mississippi River to Champaign and south of Interstate 74 heading east from Champaign to the Indiana border have determined which schools are on this list. US 51 South divides the eastern group from the west.

(South of Interstate 72 and West of US 51)
