HISTORY OF ALEXIS COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL
High School classes were held until 1923 in the building now occupied by the
Grade School. The High School students held classes on the second floor and base-
ment and the lower grades occupied the first floor. The gym classes were held in
what is now the Woman's Club building.
The new building was erected in 1923. The Board of Education was made up
of: Dr. E. S. Winbigler, A. C. Bellinger, J. R. Armstrong, W. T. Holloway, and W. M.
Humphreys. The construction foreman was Adrion Anderson, the architects, Ald-
rich Sz Aldrich of Galesburgg the general contractor, Galesburg Construction Col.,
and the heating and plumbing, Dooley Bros., of Kewanee. This building was a
great improvement over the first High School. The building itself is modern, light
and comfortable. It has ten class rooms besides a library, a large auditorium and
a. modern, well equipped gymnasium. The farm machine shop on the lower floor
has as good equipment as can be found in any wood-working shop in the state. The
Home Ec kitchen also on the lower floor is modernly equipped and this year was
redecorated and a Frigidare was added. The gym on the lower level is surrounded
by a second floor balcony. New basket boards were added last year.
Our auditorium which seats about 450, has the largest seating capacity in
town and is often used for public affairs as well as for plays, concerts and activities
of the school.
The corridors of the building are terrazzo: the second floor is steel re-inforced
concrete and is the safest place to be in the community in case of an air raid-as the
students are often told.
A. C. H. S. is accredited by the University of Illinois, the State Department of
Public Instruction and by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary
