    1. Carroll High School (Fort Wayne, Indiana) Carroll High School is a school in the unincorporated suburbs of Fort Wayne, Indiana. It is part of the Northwest Allen County Schools and is accredited by the North Central Association.HistoryIndiana school reorganizationIn 1959, the Indiana General Assembly passed the Indiana School Reorganization Act of 1959 that requires school districts with fewer than 2,000 students to consolidate with nearby districts. This resulted in the three Allen County, Indiana townships of Lake, Eel River and Perry combining into Northwest Allen County Schools (NACS). At that time, high schools existed in Arcola, Indiana and Huntertown, Indiana. The NACS school board voted to combine the two high schools in 1967 into a single newly built school south of Huntertown. The new high school, which opened in 1969, was named after Carroll Road, a rural arterial road that connects U.S. Route 33 and State Road 3 in northern Allen County.Farmland to suburban boomBooming enrollment from suburban sprawl of nearby Fort Wayne into Perry Township caused NACS to build Carroll Middle School (CMS) adjacent to the main high school in 1984. By the fall of 2004 as enrollment continued to increase, the school district built other middle schools (including a new Carroll Middle School) and the old CMS was absorbed into Carroll High School as its "freshman campus."

Fort Wayne High School

1864-1922. The cover of the 1914 Caldron yearbook illustrates 50 years 1864 1914. HISTORICAL SKETCH Central High School Fort Wayne High School opened in 1864 on East Wayne Street as the only public high school in Fort Wayne. The school's student population steadily grew, and by the early 1900s, a new building was needed in order to serve this larger student body. In 1904, a new building for the school was opened at 1200 S. Barr Street, welcoming nearly 500 students. Along with the new building was a new name, Fort Wayne High and Manual Training High School. In 1922, the school changed its name to Central High School as it was no longer the only public high school in Fort Wayne. Enrollment at the school maintained its growth, hitting over 1200 students. Through the 1930s, additions to the building were made to accommodate the number of students. In 1930, the boys and girls gyms were built, and in 1939, an addition to the building on its Clinton Street side was completed. By the 1960s, student enrollment started to decline due to movement out of the city. By 1968, enrollment dropped to just under 1000 students. It was around this time that the Civil Rights community was heavily advocating for desegregation. Central High School was already integrated with a student population that was half black and half white. The other high schools in the area, however, were not. To aid in desegregating other area high schools, Central High School was closed, district lines were redrawn, and two new high schools were created. When Central High School closed in 1971, the building was repurposed as a vocational center, the Fort Wayne Regional Vocation High School. In 1990, it was renamed as the Anthis Career Center, and in 2015 became the Anthis Career Academy. Posted March 27, 2022 on True Fort Wayne Indiana History on Facebook.

South Side High School

Totem (Fort Wayne, Ind.) Publisher Fort Wayne, Indiana : South Side High School, 1923 on Archive.org

Construction of South Side High School began on September 1, 1921 with the goal of opening the following year. On September 11, 1922, the first students attended South Side. At the time of its building it was said to be the largest single level high school in the nation. Throughout the decades there have been eight principals, the first 3 had a combined tenure of 68 years. The original principal and the second are names that are familiar to the people of Fort Wayne: Robert C. Harris (1922-1926) and R. Nelson Snider (1926-1963), these educators have an elementary school and a high school, respectively, named after them. Throughout the years the school has seen multiple expansions and renovations: the first in 1937 made the entire building 2 story. Other projects followed in the 1950s, 1970s, 1981 and 1990s. One of the largest additions was the Helen P. Brown Natatorium [1996], holding Fort Wayne’s only Olympic size pool. Among its alumni are several notable national figures, including DaMarcus Beasley, Bill Blass, Shelley Long, Bernard Pollard and Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Today we celebrate the centennial of one of Fort Wayne’s educational institutions and wish it well as it continues to educate generations to come. Copied from September 11, 2022 post by The History Center with photos on Facebook. See photo of the one story building posted June 28, 2018 by Fort Wayne Food Tours on Facebook.

As South Side commemorates its 100th anniversary this year, the 11th awards ceremony has been worked into the festivities. Twenty-two new awardees will be added to a group that now numbers nearly 100 notables – such as international fashion designer Bill Blass, former Fort Wayne mayors Ivan Lebamoff and Win Moses, actress Shelley Long and TV health reporter Dr. Nancy Snyderman. The new winners include international professional soccer star DaMarcus Beasley, a four-time World Cup participant, and National Football League safety Bernard Pollard Jr., a second-round draft pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006. Local notables include Fort Wayne Deputy Mayor Karl Bandemer, Judge Andrea D. Trevino of Allen County Superior Court, retired Lutheran pastor Dr. James Cress and Fort Wayne Police Department Deputy Chief Marty Bender. The new award winners were chosen by Davis ('52), James Frey ('55), G. Stanley Hood ('56) and Joe Deitche ('86). The awards are based on a potential recipient's outstanding career accomplishment, service to the community and contributions to South Side High School.
