1917 - 1942   Slovak Lutheran School
1926 - 1935   Stillwell Addition Grade School

The Romanian Hall, Ilasco Baptist Mission Church and Ukrainian Orthodox Church basement were also used for public schools in different years during the early 1900's.

None of the school building are currently standing. The foundation for the high school is still in the wooded area south of the Methodist Church, but nothing else. My photo of the foundation was destroyed by a misguided cup of coffee.
