This school was moved to LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, and is an authentically restored and furnished one room country school, used regularly as a classroom by students and teachers who want to relive a school day as it was 100 years ago. Curriculum materials are available upon request. A collection of 19th and early 20th century school texts, early official Kane County education records and oral histories of one room schools are a few of the school's features. Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley, a volunteer organization, manages the Pioneer Sholes School. For more information, visit https://www.ppfv.org/pioneer-sholes-school.

Group and school tours are available by appointment at (630) 377-6424.
