125 Years of Public Education in Rock Hill #rockhillschools #rockhill

1888 - 2013
Rock Hill Schools will celebrate the 125th Birthday of public education in the Rock Hill community on Wednesday, November 20. Birthday cake will be made available to every student and every district employee during lunch hours; a balloon launch will be held at every school and district facility; and a program for invited guests will be held at the Rock Hill Flexible Learning Center from 5:00-6:00 pm on Nov. 20.  
In learning about our history, did you know that:
˜the Graded School opened in 1888 on the current site of the Central Child Development Center and, ultimately, students attended Rock Hill High School on E. White Street which opened its doors in 1914?
˜Northwestern High School opened in 1971 with grades 8-11 with Samuel R. Foster as principal and Mayor Doug Echols as the school's first athletic director?
