WENTY-ONE years ago, in 1910, The William McGuffey
School was founded. This school was founded to provide
Zeilik a place for the practice teachers in the Teachers College
of Miami University to receive training under supervisors. Will-
iam H. McGuffey, for whom the school was named, was a pro-
fessor at Miami University from 1826 until 1836, and he was the
author of the well-known McGuffey Readers.
At first, the building consisted of only the south wing, in
which now are located the rooms of the Senior High School, the
Junior High School. and the Music Department of Miami Uni-
versity. At the end of the second year of existance, McGuffey
school had one hundred and twenty-five pupils enrolled. This
number included the attendance in the first two' years of high
school. In the year 1911-1912, a full four year high school course
was added. After this. the attendance grew rapidly, and because
of lack of room for all those who sought admission, it became
expedient to turn many away. As a remedy, the north wing was
built at an expense of about Sl00,000. This new wing furnished
the school a fine auditorium.
The attendance increased every year until again, there
was not enough room for all there who wished to enter the
school. Consequently, in 1925, the new east wing was erected.
costing almost Zl5165,000. At present, this wing is occupied by the
primary and intermediate departments, 'and the gymnasium, in
which is the best of modern equipment.
McGuffey High School graduates have established an envi-
able record. In 1924-25, the school was presented a trophy for
having the best freshmen on Miami Campus. The students of
the McGuffey School are in no way hindered on account of the
fact that the school is one for practice teachers. Those graduating
may be admitted to any of the state universities without taking
the entrance examinations, and are able to rank high.
This year, attendance of the McGuffey School is as follows:
Primary and intermediate departments, 3643 Junior High School,
103: Senior High School, 115.
Those of the past have done well: let us see what we can do.
