5 General Information GENERL INFORMTION Welcome This new school year is one that brings to the student body, staff, and the administration a wide range of changes and challenges as well as the opportunity to be an integral part of and participate in one of the finest secondary education programs in the state. With a dedicated staff and a motivated student body, the administration looks forward to serving the young men and women of our community in their personal mission of attaining the best educational preparation while experiencing successful personal growth. It is important that each of us demonstrate on a daily basis a standard of conduct which exemplifies a respect for self, others, and property, a willingness to work cooperatively to overcome conflicts which interfere with the learning process, and the desire to create and maintain a social climate which insures physical safety and mental wellness. History The public school system in Harrisonburg had its beginning in 1871, one year after the General ssembly of Virginia had enacted a law to establish a public school system in the state. On September 23, 1871, the first meeting of the school board was held to organize the public school system. The board elected to start with three separate schools, one for boys, another for girls, and still another for black students. In 1879 a seven-room brick building was erected on South Main Street on the site of the Female Seminary, which had been used for the girl's public school until this time. It was in this building and on these grounds that Harrisonburg High School had its beginning. In 1906 the high school and the eighth grade were housed on the second floor of the Masonic Temple. Two years later a stone building was erected in front of the brick building for the high school students. In 1928 the high school department, along with the seventh and eighth grades, was moved to the present location of the East uilding of the old high school on South High Street. In September 1967 the high school moved to Grace Street (west building). This structure is located on land joining the older building and was built at the cost of approximately two million dollars. The 1100-seat auditorium was erected in 1952 and the Claude Warren Field House was erected in In 1989 the opening of the new Thomas Harrison Middle School and the subsequent move of the staff and student body of Thomas Harrison Junior High resulted in the expansion of the Harrisonburg High School facility to include both east and west complexes. In 1994, the year in which Harrisonburg High School celebrated its 100th nniversary, an eleven and a half million dollar, eighteen month-long major renovation project was completed at Harrisonburg High School. ll structures included in the high school complex, namely, the

6 General Information High Street building, the 1934 West Classroom addition, the 1950 uditorium and North Classroom additions, the 1959 Claude Warren Fieldhouse, the 1965 Grace Street building and the vocational structure were extensively renovated. In addition to the renovation of existing space, thirteen additional classrooms and major expansions of the library and the cafeteria were completed. In the school year, the Harrisonburg City School oard and the Harrisonburg City Council approved the construction and funding of a new Harrisonburg High School that opened in ugust of 2005 on Garbers Church Road. In 1894 there was one teacher in the high school, Mr. W.H. Keister, who was also its principal. The term was seven months and there were thirteen pupils. In 1908, Mr. Keister was made Supervising Principal of the Harrisonburg Schools. In 1918, he was made Superintendent of the Harrisonburg Public Schools; the position was held until Mr. M.H. ell, who served until 1964, succeeded Mr. Keister. Following Mr. ell were Mr. Ray V. Sonner and Mr. Hugh Nolen, each serving two years. Mr. Wayne King served from July 1968 to June Mr. C. lan Hiner served from July 1985 to June 30, Dr. J. W. Good served from July 1, 1995 to June 30, Dr. Donald Ford followed until June 30, Dr. Scott Kizner is currently Superintendent of Harrisonburg City Public Schools.

7 General Information School Philosophy Our mission is to prepare every student to succeed and to become a contributing member of our global society.

To accomplish this end, it is the philosophy of Harrisonburg High School to motivate our students' intellectual curiosity and sense of social responsibility, educate our students to become life-long learners and independent thinkers, and celebrate the diversity of our students' cultures, opinions, and achievements. This philosophy can only be realized within an atmosphere conducive to creative thinking and risk-taking, open discussion, and shared decision-making. Core eliefs Residency Learning is the heart and soul of what we do. ll children are unique individuals with special gifts and talents. dults and students are accountable for high expectations in academics, behavior and attitude. ll people in the learning community, both children and adults, are to be valued and respected. Risk taking, problem solving, teamwork, creativity and a sense of humor are traits we embrace. The community is our partner, and ideas and opinions are shared and valued. In searching for solutions, we look at ourselves first and then seek the wisdom of others.
