Cahokia High School is a public high school in Cahokia, Illinois that is part of the Cahokia Unit School District 187.


In 2013 the district announced that due to budget issues it planned to eliminate athletic programs. This would have eliminated Cahokia High School's programs.[2] In June of that year the district board voted 6-0 to keep athletics and arts programs, but at the same time it voted to close two schools and consolidate other academic programs.[3] Therefore the high school retained its academic programs.[2]


Eighty percent of Cahokia's graduates enroll in college or post-graduate training programs.[4]

In 1985, CHS art teacher Robert Maguire was named the "Illinois Teacher of the Year" by the National Teacher of the Year project of the Council of Chief State School Officers.[5]


As of 2006, the student body of the school was 85.1% black, 13.8% white, 0.9% Hispanic and 0.2% Asian/Pacific Islander.[4]
