TWENTY YEARS AFTER
ln addition to the school in Victorville, there are now two
other high schools in the district-Big Bear High School,
located at Pine Knot, and Twenty-Nine Palms High School at
Twenty-Nine Palms. ln l933-34 Big Bear High School was
accredited. This year the school is housed in its own plant.
The district voted a special tax for the purpose of securing a
site, and the Eureka Camp was purchased. Through the assist-
ance of the WPA it has been possible to provide a building for
each of the three teachers, a social hall, a recreation hall for
the girls, garages, and a physical education room. When the
WPA project is finished the school will have an athletic field
and tennis courts.
Last summer the board accepted the Twenty-Nine Palms
district in order to provide the children with the opportunity
of securing a high school education. High school classes had
been maintained in the grammar school previous to this year.
Since the state law does not permit more than two years of
high school work to be given in a grammar school district, it
was necessary for them to unite with a high school district.
From a small beginning of nineteen pupils and three teach-
ers in l9l 5, our high school district has grown to one of three
high schools and fourteen teachers and 287 pupils-Victor
Valley Union High School at Victorville with nine teachers
and 225 pupils, Big Bear High School at Pine Knot with three
teachers and forty pupilsg and Twenty-Nine Palms with two
teachers and twenty-two pupils.
The district maintains seven school buses--six at Victor-
ville and one at Big Bear. Some students ride as far as seventy
miles a day.
We hope that the next twenty years will see as much
change and development in our school as the last twenty
years. We feel sure that changes will come and that our school
will continue to progress with the needs of its pupils in order
that it may educate for living.
