History

Education on the 鈥渉ill鈥 in 黑料社区 began in 1909 when O. C. Britton, prominent early-day educator, gained the support of far-sighted 黑料社区 citizens in opening a private school known as Britton Training Institute. The school operated successfully until military involvement in World War I so depleted the number of students that it was forced to close.
