New High School 1923


New High School, 1923. In the background is (he old high school, soon to be replaced with
a new building. The new school superintendent J.C.. Turner oversaw the construction and
restructuring of the high school. The new high school sat on land that held the outdoor
basketball court. Only four classrooms, a study hall, a shop, and home economics rooms were
in the new school, therefore forcing the high school to continue using the third floor of the old
school tor classes.


RISING SUN HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI 1875-1923

Rising Sun High School began in January 1873 as a result of a fire which destroyed the old school building in February 1873. Until 1879. the high school
course was for three years; after that time it was the standard four year program. Thus there was no graduating class in 1880.
