Sangamon County Schools

Sangamon County is located in Central Illinois with the county seat being the capital of this great state, Springfield. Springfield is known for its food and as a home to such performing arts as ballet, jazz and a carillon festival, which happens annually. Common tourist attractions include a multitude of historic sites affiliated with President Lincoln, state government sites and various food-related attractions such as the Maid-Rite Sandwich Shop. Lake Springfield is a 4,260-acre artificial lake located in the city southeast of downtown. It was formed in 1931-35 by building Spaulding Dam across Sugar Creek, a tributary of the Sangamon River. The lake was created as a source of water for Springfield and to provide coolant for the City Water, Light & Power coal-fired electrical generating plant. It has also served as a focus of local recreation. Owners of high-powered motor boats enjoy the lack of a power limit on much of the lake, and the lake is known for warm-water fish such as bluegill and crappie.

Sangamon County is also home to some of the finest schools in the state of Illinois. There are eight public and private high schools in the city of Springfield alone and all of the schools county-wide make great use of the best technology and resources available. There are also multiple elementary, middle, and high schools all throughout the county, with some of the most dedicated staff and administrators around. The University of Illinois at Springfield is a small, liberal arts university located in Springfield. The school is one of three campuses of the University of Illinois. With so many wonderful educational and recreational activities found in Sangamon County, its no wonder that so many people call it home.
