During the summer of 1S97, the writer while passing through the valley spent the night In Coviua. The Southern Pacific railroad was then just building. The twelve yours intervening between that tlato and the present have wrought great changes in this part of the Hnn Ua- briel valley. lu no one institution or enterprise has there been greater changes than in the development of Covina's schools. As this article has special reference to (ho history of secotidnry education, the reader need not feel that the elementary schools have not kept pace with ho general development. In 1801 the dnsiio for a school higher than the elemontary took hold of the people of this valley, and Azusa, Azusn City, Cllcmlora and Co- vhia City school districts united to form tho Citrus Union high school district, In a small two-story houso anil annex, still standing north of Covina on Citrus avenue, the high school was organized and maintained until 1899. ,. ' \ The increase in tho contingent of students from Coviua district" was BO rapid that in 1899, the trusteed of our district petitioned tor separation from the Citrus Union district, to found a district high school for Covine. . The * petition being granted, tbe "- tt ^-'- i/ — o school here opened in tbe fall of 1899 with about a soore of students. By 1902 the attendance had so increased that It was found necessary to provide more extensive and adequate facilities. For this purpose the Covina City district voted, on April 10th, 1002, to issue bonds in tho sum of $10,000. With this tho present high school site and building wore purchased and ercotod. The putroim then rejoiced that they hud itmplo room for tho increaso of their high mjlinol for fifteen' or morn years. Within half n dir/.o.u years tho incroufcpil ultc.ndimco and tho broader demnnuV of thn curriculum found (lie building too small the facilities inadequate.

Thus expansion and enlargement became tho waf oh words of 1907. In November of 1007 tho Coriiia City high school district was augmented by the annexation of tho Charter Oak school district, this union forming the present Covinn Union high school district. Tho voters of this union high Holmul district on August 2'Jtb, 1909, by an overwhelming majority, authorized tho immlng of 3(>0,QOO bonds for tho erection and «qiiip- ment of tho now high school building now in oourso of construction. The now building, us planned, will bo olio cf the most boautiful in do- sign and finish in Southern California, and will aooommudato '.I(JO students, From nn enrollment of about 20 in 1990-1000, and a chiH.s of one gnulu- nlo, thu Hi'hool IIHS inornasod in tho uino yours in enrollment to 1110 and will this year graduate a class of 2'2. With a constantly widening territory from which to draw, and a rapidly augmenting population ( within our city liuiils, it is, evident fu'-tKoso. who look into tbo future that Covina Union higlv school ^118- l*iot has in no way exceeded her needs.
