During the boom years of the space program, a great demand for a high school in the area arose. Previously, beach students had been attending what is now Rockledge High. In 1964 Cocoa Beach High School proudly opened its doors to students in grades seven through twelve. The school began with many strong traditions which are still held today. The Minuteman was chosen as our mascot partially because he was a pa- triot who helped defend our new na- tion and because the Minuteman mis- sile was our first line of national de- fense at the time. This is the basis for the patriotic school colors of red, white, and blue, Heritage as the year- book ' s name, and the traditions of the graduation ceremony. The scene for graduation is set in the commons with two statues and a bridge. A graduating student stands at the beginning of the bridge where the revolutionary Minuteman stands re- presenting the past. Then the student crosses the bridge toward the future represented by the Minuteman mis- sile. Every CBHS graduate carries a memory of his trip over the bridge. With the recent threat of closing our school due to the lack of enrollment, it is hard to believe that this school was once overflowing with students. The building was not large enough in 1966 to hold the nearly 2,000 students, so nine portables were placed on the property. In 1967 Roosevelt Junior High was built to relieve the huge en- rollment. The population went down to 865 (in grades 10-12) a few years after Roosevelt was built. In 1972, the student body hit its peak of 1,065 stu- dents, but in 1975 ninth graders re- turned to CBHS to bolster its then de- clining enrollment. Since that time, the population has steadily decreased to a population this year of 780 stu- dents in grades nine through twelve. The graduation ceremony Is filled with tradi- tion as students cross the bridge from the past to the future. The Revolutionary Minuteman was present- ed by the Class of ' 67, and the replica of the Minuteman missile was donated by the 6555th Aerospace Test Wing and the Boeing Company in the same year.
