Durand High School, is located in the town of Durand, Illinois. The campus is located 20 miles northwest of Rockford, 20 miles northeast of Freeport and 20 miles southeast of Monroe, Wisconsin. It is located just one mile north of Illinois Route 75. The Durand Community School District became a consolidated district in 1949 when the State of Illinois mandated that large school districts be created from small or rural unit districts, therefore, the Elton, Laona and Durand communities were consolidated into Durand's High School.[2]

Facilities

Durand Community Unit School District #322 presently operates one school building with all grade levels, pre-K - 12. The Elementary School is located in the southeast portion of the building. The Middle School and High School building located on the northern portion of the building, was built in 1949 and also accommodated two additions to the original structure occurring in the 1970's. The high school complex also includes a baseball diamond and play field space for physical education classes and playground equipment for elementary students.

Within the facility, the building houses a modern library; a fine arts department, that includes graphic arts as well as chorus and band; an agricultural department; math, science, English departments, industrial technology, foreign language, and social sciences. The physical education department includes two gymnasiums, a weight room, and training room.
