Lena-Winslow High School Dedicated December 7, 1958, Lena-Winslow High School, affectionately known as "Le-Win", is located in the town of Lena, Illinois. Part of the Lena-Winslow Community Unit School District, Le-Win became the second largest school district in Stephenson County, when, in 1949, the State of Illinois mandated that larger school districts be created. Only the district of Freeport is larger.


Lena-Winslow Community Unit No. 202 includes students from the villages of Lena, Winslow, McConnell, Eleroy and Waddams Grove. Because only Lena and Winslow had High Schools, their names were both given to the new union. Originally the high school was provided with students from 21 rural elementary schools including McConnell, Eleroy, and Waddams Grove, as well as the elementary schools in Lena and Winslow. Currently, all students within the CUSD attend Lena-Winslow Elementary and Jr. High prior to attending the high school.

School Song[edit]

Wave the Flag (For Le-Win High School) is the fight song for Lena-Winslow's athletic teams, adapted from the University of Chicago Maroons. The tune was adapted by the University of Chicago from Miami University's "Marching Song" written in 1908 by Raymond H. Burke, a University of Chicago graduate who joined Miami's faculty in 1906.


Wave the flag of Le-Win High School,
Black and gold so grand.
Ever shall our team be victors
Known throughout the land.
You, Rah, Rah
We will always be there fighting,
Without a fear we'll stand.
Wave those grand and dear old colors,
Black and gold for Le-Win High.
