Aki- it ,1- Aboye are the pupils of Ford City High School in the school year 1908-1909. They are pictured in front of the store building on lhird Avenue where their classes were held when the old school bet-anie too crowded. The next fall saw them entering the new building on Fourth Avenue. j0lf'6! ,SZAOOK ' - ,7Alf'0lfl, A lfAQ 806145 One year before the turn of the century, in 1889, Ford City was made an independent school district, and a four-roomed building, constructed on land donated by Captain John B. Ford on lower Sixth Avenue, was built to house the first school Children, Later enlarged to eight rooms, this build- ing was the one in which members of the Class of 1902, the first class to be graduated from Ford City High School, completed their schooling just fifty years ago. At the time of their graduation, there were approximately two hundred students making up the entire school population of the Ford City Public Schools, about thirty of these being high school students. Under the direction of the princi- pal, james J. Palmer, the six members of the class of 1902 completed a three year high school course, all classes being taught by two teachers. Classes were graduated from Ford City High School in 1902, 1903, 1904. 1905, 1906, and 1907. There was no graduating class in 1908, as, at that time, a four year high school course was adopted by the board of education and administration. During the years of 1908 and 1909, because of the increased enrollment in the school, all high school students held their classes in an old store building on Third Avenue, from where the class of 1909, the first to complete a four year course, was graduated. 1t was during this period that those interested in the educational future of Ford City's young peo- ple began to see the inadequacy of the old eight- roomed building on Sixth Avenue. ln October. 1908, the cornerstone was laid for the present school building, located on Eleventh Street and Fourth Avenue. Ready for occupancy in the year 1909, this new building housed, in addition to classrooms. a gymnasium, where Ford Cityis name as a town of outstanding athletes had its start. Also the new building contained an auditorium, the stage of which has seen many interesting events-the grad- uation of hundreds of young men and women, the plays, concerts, and operettas that the talented stu- dents have produced, and many community affairs. As the school population grew, and as the curriculum was enriched, the need for more room was recognized, and the original building was ex- tended to Fifth Avenue, the annex being completed in 1922. At that time both the grades and the high school were housed in the same building. but again a growing school population caused the needr for expansion of the school plant. In 1929, accordingly, the present grade school building was completed. Until the year 1934, both boys and girls held their physical education classes in what is now known as the girls, gym. ln 1934, the fine gymna- sium on Fifth Avenue was constructed to house the boys, physical education classes and to accomo- date the scores of fans that witness the basketball games. Ford City High School has been fortunate in that its young people have been under the care of farsighted board of education members and capable administrators and faculty members. Those who
