100 Years Ago- November 30, 2017 Edition
At a recent meeting of the Board of Education, they decided to add to the teaching force of the High School. This will allow some of the larger classes to be divided and it will also permit the addition of a Commercial Department. The Commercial courses offered will be equal to those given by the leading High Schools and business colleges of the State and pupils completing the regular course will be prepared to take the Civil Service examinations. The classes in this department will begin Monday, September 17, 1917, providing enough enroll for this work to warrant the expense, but as there are many calls for people with business training the enrollment will undoubtedly be large.
