History[edit]

The current campus was established in 2004, and is part of the Valley View Community Unit School District 365U, which also includes Romeoville High School. The original Bolingbrook High School campus, which opened in 1974, was located on Lee Lane and Blair Lane within the Village. The former campus is now known as Brooks Middle School. High School students residing in 365U attend Bolingbrook High School. Continued community growth prompted the passage of an April 2002 referendum for a new state-of-the-art high school located at Schmidt Road and Lily Cache Lane, which opened in August 2004 for the 2004–05 school year. All high school-aged students residing within the Valley View 365U District boundaries within Bolingbrook now attend the Bolingbrook campus solely. Also they have won the state championship for football in 2011 in class 8A, as well as several IHSA girls basketball championships.
