History at High Noon: Junior and Senior High Schools

From sports and music to the buildings and academics throughout the years, take a look back at local secondary education at “History at High Noon: Junior and Senior High Schools” on Thursday, May 17 from 12:05 to 12:45 p.m. Attendees are invited to bring their lunch to this free presentation at the Sioux City Public Museum.

Sioux City’s first high school opened in 1869 and put out its first graduating class of five students in 1875. The first junior high school opened in 1917 under superintendent M. G. Clark and was a model for Iowa and the nation. Since then tens of thousands have attended Sioux City’s public and private institutions. Presenter Tom Munson, Archives Manager, will focus not only on the structures, but will also examine the evolution and innovation of Sioux City’s junior and senior high schools.

The Sioux City Public Museum is located at 607 4th Street in downtown Sioux City.  For more information, call 712-279-6174 or visit
