The History of Kingston High School
 
Kingston (population 980) is located in northeastern Illinois and may soon (if it isn't already) be considered a western suburb of Chicago. The town is situated in northern Dekalb County on IL Rt. 72 at Five Points Road. This places Kingston about 15 miles southeast of Rockford. The Soo Line Railroad runs through town as does the Kishwaukee River. A great web site for more on the history of Kingston can be found at http://www.villageofkingston.org/history.html
 
Kingston was officially recognized as a town in Illinois in 1886. The school system probably started a little before that time. Kingston supported its own high school until the 1940's when consolidation talks with nearby Genoa were started. The talks became a reality in 1947 with the creation of the Genoa-Kingston School District. The high school and most of the grammar school students attend school in Genoa. There is still an elementary school in Kingston supporting grades 2 and 3 for the Genoa-Kingston School System. 
 
The Kingston School building that housed high school education, pictured above, burned down in a fire in 1954. A replacement building was soon built on the same grounds. Pictured at the bottom of this page are two schools: the top picture was the Kingston School of the 1800s, and the bottom picture is the Kingston Elementary School today.

Athletics
 
There is very limited information regarding the athletic accomplishments of Kingston High School. Basketball was definitely offered and it is probable that baseball and track were, too. Kingston did at one time also have a baseball team called the Kingston Tigers, but the capacity in which they played is unknown.
 
Boys Basketball
 
The Kingston High School boys' basketball program earned one District Championship during its existence. Unfortunately, the coaches' name and team record are not available. We are sure there were many great teams in Kingston HS history. If you have any knowledge of the basketball or other athletic accomplishments at Kingston High, please drop us a line. The District Chazmpionship is listed below.
 
1936-37      District Champions
 
Band
 
The Kingston High School students participated in band for certain. Below is a photo showing Laura and Thelma Vandling wearing their Kingston High School band uniforms. Kingston High School had a band program from at least the late 1930s through the 1940s.
