PAHS Student Guide 1915

How many people remember the student guide you
were given your first day as a freshman at PAHS?
It might have looked something like this.
It was about 100 pages long filled with 
everything you wanted to know about PAHS.
If you were a student in PAHS almost 100 years ago
your student guide looked like this. 
 It was only 17 pages long. 
Let's take a look at what it contained. 
Official Seal 
There were 21 teachers and most were teaching 
two subjects.  The Principal and Vice-Principal also
taught classes. 
In the late 50's PAHS had 75+ teachers. 
The Perth Amboy High School Spirit. 
Absence, Tardiness and the dreaded Report Card. 
Text Books, the Library and School Hours.
School began at 8:30 am and finished at 1:30 p.m 
School was re-opened at 2:30 and an hour was 
given to students who needed special attention. 
In the late fifties, school opened at 8:20 am and ended 
at 2:35 pm. 
Fire Drills, Athletics and High School Cheers. 
What cheers do you remember?
