N FEBRUARY 7. 1927, the first classes were conducted in the Taylor Allderdice
new high school on Squirrel Hill. The building was one of the finest
and mo-st modern of the schools in the country. Since then a large annex has
been built to accommodate the fast-gr-owing number o-f pupils which has in-
creased from six hundred eighty-nine to approximately 1 three thousand two-
hundred fifty. Of the thirty-four original instructors twenty-three remain among
the one hundred twelve teachers at the present. Allderdice has grown.from a
junior high school to the largest high school in western Pennsylvania.,
As Allderdice has grown, many important organizations for the improvement
and management -of school affairs have arisen. The Student Council, which was
begun in September, 1929, and has progressed efficiently, is one of the most
helpful and influential groups in determining the school's policy. The Foreword,
which is the school's newspaper, has exerted quite an influence at Allderdice.
There are many other athletic, scholastic, and non-scholastic clubs and organiza-
tions which have not only been quite useful in helping the pupils use their leisure
in a worthwhile manner -but also in broadening their knowledge and developing
In june 1930, the first class of fifty graduated from Taylor Allderdice.
Since that time the classes have increased until the present class which is onegof
the largest. Every class has given a gift of some sort to improve the appear-
ance of Allderdice or benefit the pupils of the school in some 111?l111'1C1'. The
honor students of Allderdice graduate not only with honor, but they also may be
members of the National Honor Society. Students who have honor grades and
good character are chosen as members of this honorary society although not more
than fifteen per cent of the class may be chosen. There have been ten thousand
pupils at Allderdice during its first ten years, and most of them have some sort
of pleasant feeling toward our school and the ideals for which it stands: schol-
arship, tolerance, initiative, cooperation, obedience, honesty, and good judgment.
