For good reason, Great Falls High School’s historic original building, built in 1930, was recognized in 2017 by Architectural Digest Magazine as one of the Most Beautiful Public High Schools in America. During 1965, my class was the last to graduate before CMR was built. At the peak of its utilization, 3,000 students attended in 3 shifts, starting at 6 AM and ending at 6 PM.
That is a blip in its history that was only 35 years after it was built and 53 years ago today. I assume many would be interested so I intend to chronical the history of Great Falls High School. Please stay tuned.
Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of informational articles detailing the history of Great Falls High School, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
