THE HISTORY OF THE ADAMS HIGH SOHOOL
The first public school of the village of Adams was built in
the year 1869, with an accomodation for 100 pupils, and twenty
four years later the second school was built east of the tennis
court with an enrollment of 120 pupils., John Griffin of Austin'
was principal and had charge of'the upper classes, and Miss Loretta
Guinney had charge of the lower classes. The following are the .
names of the teachers that taught in the succeeding years: Supt.
Thaddeus Thompson, Miss Susie Rattely, and Mary Scanlon Howell.
T 'With the increase in the number of pupils a new room had to
be added with Miss Carrie Slindee in charge. Miss Andrews had
charge of the primary grades, making an average of 52 pupils to
each room. p
Occasionally plays were given for the purpose of obtaining
money to redecorate the rooms., Every two weeks a program, which
was similar to our present P. T . A., was given.
When William Masteloor became principal in 1902, he had a
class that undertook the work of the first year high school, which
was continued until our present school was built. ,
Superintendent Scow remained three years in the public school.
In 1903, the Catholic School was built, which took one-half
of the students from the public school.
-The present school was built in 1916-17 and opened in the fall
of 1919 with L. S. Kildahl acting as superintendent. Since then,
R. A. Peterson, R. G. Hoveland, C. E. Ulvestad, V. D. Ha1vorson,,
and H. J. Sorkness have been superintendents. The dedication pro-
gram of 1917 discloses the cost of the building as being S44,000.
The members of thetschool board at that time were:
Schneider, , . . , , President., J. JZ Fardahl
A. Amble.......... Treasurer L. Lewison
A. Torgerson...... Clerk Ole Bergene
In 1918-19 there was an enrollment of 240 pupils in the whole
school. Today we find more pupils are attending high school both
from our own district and from the adjoining rural districts, so Q
that the high school enrollment is as large as our grade enrollment
In 1918-19 three students were graduated on completing their
highschool course, and in 1920 eleven students were graduated af-
ter.hav1ng completed four years of high school. The smallest
class of nine students were graduated in 1922.
