HISTORY OF S.C. SCHOOLS


THE HISTORIES OF SIOUX CITY'S JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS

Sioux City’s first high school opened in 1869 and graduated its first class of five students in 1875. The first junior high school opened in 1917 under Superintendent M. G. Clark. At that time, this junior high school was not only a model for Iowa, but it was national education model for structure and curriculum. Since this time, tens of thousands of students have attended Sioux City public and private institutions.

Tom Munson, the Sioux City Museum’s Archives Manager, will show memorable photographs of these spectacular school buildings. For many attending, seeing these photographs will be a wonderful journey down “memory lane.” Finally, Munson also examines the development and innovations over the years in these beautiful education structures.

Adequate time will be given for discussion, memories and questions about this unique Sioux City situation.
