2 1929 L'ECHO 1929 gg History of Naples High School Naples High School has had a long and honorable history. For nearly a century it has rendered to the people of the community a service worthy of the support accorded it. Thousands of children have passed through its portalsg some to glorious success in the business world: some to places of note in the political and professional life of the state and nation but the great majority to the ordinary walks of life-where the great lessons of thrift, integrity, and high ideals, learned in Naples High School have served them well. Public education has always been a problem and back in Colonial times, the problem was with the people as it is now. Little can be gleaned of the facts regarding education or educational facilities from the founding of Naples, prior to the Revolu- tionary War until about 1850. Private schools Hourished and then waned. Spas- modic attempts at establishing common schools met with indifferent success. ln the decade 1850-60, the people of Naples became interested in acquiring better educational facilities and sentiment gradually grew, culminating in the founding of Naples Academy in 1858. This was a private institution, the subscribers raising the funds with which to carry out the project. Names always known to Naples appear in the list of subscribers-Maxfield, Monier, Lyon, Powell, Sutton, Covel. On March 10th, 1859, the Regents of the University of the State of New York granted the Naples Academy a charter. Two years later, the building project was completed and the building occupied. For nearly thirty years, Naples Academy enjoyed a high reputation for scholarship and it drew its patronage from far and wide. All this time the Academy was governed by a Board of Trustees chosen by the stockholders in the original undertaking. In 1897, due to certain changes in the Education Laws of the state, it was deemed advisable to form a union school district. Accordingly the three districts in the village were consolidated and Naples High School came into existence. With the school now under the direct control of the public, a new interest was awakened in the hearts and -minds of the townspeople. The curriculum was broad- ened: the faculty enlarged and the grand old school went on doing its great work. A training course for teachers was first instituted in 1906. Since that time up to and including the present, Naples High School pupils have had the advantagerof this privilege-with the exception of a few years during the World War period. From the very beginning, great pride was manifested in the establishment and maintenance of a splendid library. At no time was there any stinting in this direction. Other things might wait for lack of funds but the library-never. For the past score years this library has been known as the Hiram Maxfield Memorial Library and Mr. Dennison H. Maxfield has generously matched each dollar the Board of Education expends upon the library. As a result, Naples High School pupils enjoy one of the finest school libraries in the state of New York. We have tried to briefly trace the development of Naples High School. In our limited space, we could not give recognition to the splendid work of hundreds of loyal teachers, trustees and pupils who gave unselfish service to the cause of public education in Naples. These Hne people had caught the vision-somewhere and some- how. Today we enjoy the fruits of their labor. They builded well. In closing, we fervently hope that Naples High School pupils will recognize the gloriousness of our school history, that they will always strive to uphold its honor and to cherish the ideals. W. E. G. 181
