Lawrence High School Alumni (Lawrence, MA)

1861 Mary Gibbs report card

In 1852 the first class graduated from the Oliver High School, later to be known as Lawrence High School.  Originally the course was three years with an extra year often called a Classical Course as a 4 year course.  In 1879 the requirements switched to four years for everyone although taking a classical course was still possible.  In 1883 an abbreviated English course was added of only two years, but was discontinued after two years.  By 1916 pupils had the choice of college prep, normal school prep, or general course.  A few years later all the graduates were considered college preparatory.

Here is a list of graduates of Lawrence High School.
