In Park Street School with its four teachers, there are over 200 pupils. The total enrollment is almost 1,800 pupils with a faculty of 43. The Domestic Science Department, which has been such a success, and which is considered among the best conducted departments of its kind in the High Schools of the State, contains 600 pupils in sewing and about 50 pupils in cooking. The growth of the High Point Schools is rather unusual. From a few more than 300, at its organization in 1899, to 1,800 pupils, from 9 to 43 teachers, from one to four brick buildings and from property worth 311,000 to that worth 3125.000 all within hfteen years, is a growth worthy the pride of any city. And such growth is continuing. High Point weaves silk, and cotton, makes chairs, coffins, baskets, hosiery, pants, mirrors, organs, beds, street cars and almost every inanimate thing, but, that which is more important, she makes men and women. The schools are kept unusually sanitary, having Civic League organizations in almost every grade, in which the children usually take much interest and vie with one another in keeping their flower gardens and school grounds clean. The schools have many conveniences which many schools do not have. So much of the growth is due to the Superintendent, Prof. Thornwell Haynes, who is loved and looked up to by all the pupils, who feel that on any difficult question, they may receive all the aid that Professor Haynes is able to give them. Through the efforts of Mr. XV. M. Marr, the principal of South Main Street School, the value of the apparatus in the physical laboratory, during the past year, has been added to considerably. Already more interest has been shown I2

The High School has also shown improvement, in the last two years, in the introduction of spelling and writing, features which are being neglected by so many High Schools. The spirit of the school children is that of loyalty and support. Much respect and love is shown to the teachers, thus making the conduct unusually good. Another thing of interest is the system by which the chapel exercises are conducted. At least twice a month one of the grades has charge of the morning exer- cises. Much talent is shown and the excellent training which they are receiving is exhibited here, where, otherwise it would not be. The commencement exercises of the schools are conducted in the main auditorium at Main Street School. They usually last three nights. ln these exercises the work and progress of the children is shown to parents, who other- wise do not really know how well their children are progressing and what excel- lent training they are receiving. They give the parents a chance to be proud of their children. The growth of the schools is also due largely to the men who have acted as guardians, and some of the most successful and prominent business men of the State have been its trustees. For nineteen years Mr. Elwood Cox has been chairman of this board and some of its members at different times have been: Messrs. XY. P. Pickett, Fred N. Tate, NY. G. Bradshaw, A. Lindsay, D. A, Stanton, NVm. Tate, E. A. Snow, XY. H. Ragan, A. E. Tate, George Matton. J. J. Farriss, V. NY. Idol. ln the Spring of 1915 the city assumed the commission form of govern- ment and at present the town and schools are under one and the same manage- ment, composed of Messrs. XY. C. Pickett, Mayorg R. B. Terry, C. D. Smith, A. E. Alexander and S. L. Davis. The schools have continued to grow under this management, thus the change has not seemed to hurt its growth. Un May 4th, 1916, the schools gave a pageant. The different grades, each represented some historical event. This is the first time the schools have ever attempted anything of this kind, and the success shows that it is a good thing and worth trying again. 13
