HISTORY OF CRESTON HIGH SCHOOL
The first school in Creston was a one room building erected
a few years prior to 1878, and was surrounded by a rail fenca
This building was moved to another location, remodled, and is
still being used as a dwelling house. The permanent school was
founded and built in 1876. Funds for a one story building were
furnished by the township, but the people of Creston decided it
was much more desirable to educate their children at home rather
than to send them to such far away schools as Canaan and Smiths
ville Academies. A group of public spirited citizens of that
time, by their own contributions, added enough to the fund al-
ready given by the township to build a two-story school building
The first teacher was James McCoy and a nephew of this mari
was a teacher at a later date. One of the instructors of that
decade was William Dawson who later became a nationally known
lecturer. Dr, Litell, well remembered by many residents of the
present time was also one of the early instructors.
In the year 1878 the township took control of our Creston
Schools. Thus it has since remained a public school. In the
year 1890 the first class of six members completed the course re-
quired at that time and was graduated under Professor Mills. The
smallest class to graduate was that of 1898 with only three mem-
bers. what a contrast tb the number who are completing the
course today, and what a difference in the courses as well,
' The student body increased, and a few years later because of
the danger to first and second grade pupils in crossing the rail-
roads, a building was erected in the north end of the village to
house the first and second grades.
Continued added enrollement demands more room and more instr-
uctors. It may be remembered what a hue and cry was raised wheri
it was decided that the superintendent needed an assistant,
Until this time the superintendent had been compelled to teach
all classes in high school as well as having the supervision of
all grades. '
In the year 1908 the old frame building containing four
rooms was condemned by the State Fire Marshal. Some repairs were
made, but it was still considered unsafe. The old building held
until 1915 when after many " 'cussins and discussinsn a fine new
brick building was erected. After the building was completed and
equipment installed, how proudly they all pointed to the modern
Centralization of township schools occurred in 1918. The
building was enlarged to its present size in 1924 and new the
school is classed among the best small town schools in Ohio, and
with Ohio schools rating among leading ones in the nation it is
not hard to see where Creston stands.
As yet Creston has not produced a President, but they are
still sawing out the timbers from which Presidents are built.
