Located in McHenry and Kane counties of northern Illinois, Huntley School District 158 serves 9,600+ students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12, residing in Huntley, western portions of Lake in the Hills and Algonquin, and surrounding areas. The District employs more than 1,400 staff members and has been one of the fastest-growing school districts in Illinois over the past decade.
The District gained renown for its campus-concept idea, devised to accommodate the huge population growth it experienced in the 2000s. Over that period, the District transformed from a one elementary/one high school district to its current five elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school, located on three campuses. Built between 1997 and 2005, all of the District’s schools were designed with a primary focus on technology in education.
Huntley 158 has been recognized as a leader at state and national levels for bringing innovation to K-12 education, while at the same time maintaining among the lowest per-pupil spending rates in all of Northern Illinois.
