ANNOUNCEMENT
Weedsport, a village of 1,600 inhabitants, is situated 22 miles west of Syracuse on the line of the New York Central, West Shore and Lehigh Valley Railroads. These railroads, with the Rochester, Syracuse & Eastern trolley road, now under construction, will afford easy communication with that part of Cayuga County lying between Auburn and Lake Ontario.
This school was established as a High School under special charter by the Legislature of the State of New York in 1858, and for more than a half century it has had continued prosperity. Its patrons and supporters have been keenly alive to its best interests. Through their efforts during the last year a new school house has been erected, costing more than $30,000. It stands in the midst of ample grounds, affording opportunity for all kinds of games.

The building, two stories in height, contains besides the ordinary grade and class rooms, a gymnasium, physical, chemical and biological laboratories, a lecture room, large library, Principal’s office and a room especially equipped for the teaching of music and elocution.

In outlining the curriculum of Weedsport High School, we have sought to meet the needs of two classes of pupils; first those whose education is completed here and secondly those who intend to enter some higher institution of learning. Hence there will be found in this catalogue a course of study fully approved by the Regents of the State, embracing such a varied number of electives that any pupil may select a course well adapted to his needs.
Believing that thorough instruction in the common branches is the most essential part of a good education, four years’ work in English is required and a thorough course in mathematics covering Advanced Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry.
We trust our patrons and those especially interested in the school will give this catalogue a careful perusal.
