Tonica Grade School Sign

The Tonica Community Consolidated School District #79 is a K-8th grade district encompassing 59 square miles.

For a period of forty years, from 1868 to 1907, and before additions, the main part of this school house [called the “white school” because of its exterior color] was built in 1868 and before that time two one-room structures were used on this site for eleven years.
