About Hollis Grade School

Hollis Consolidated Grade School District 328 is a self-contained Kindergarten-8th Grade school district serving residents of Hollis Township in Peoria County, Illinois.  Hollis operates out of a single building campus with unique facilities such as a dedicated auditorium, large gymnasium, extensive library, a science lab, and a competition-sized swimming pool. 

Hollis is in the unique position to offer a decreased tuition rate for non-residents. Due to a waiver granted by the Illinois General Assembly, Hollis Grade School has lowered its non-resident tuition rate from $11,562.00 to $2,800 per year.  This enables Hollis to bring in select students in order to provide a better experience for all our students, while still maintaining a small class size averaging about 15 students per class.
