Schools of Holdenville

In 1901, the city passed a bond issue to build its first school
building serving the students of Holdenville until the school
board bought the building from the city in 1909. It was known
as the "Old Building."

Our present high school was constructed n 1920-1921,
at a cost of $ 106,000. There were twenty three rooms
and an auditorium on the third floor that would seat
700 people. On January 6, 1930, fire destroyed most
of the interior. The top story was removed and additions
were constructed on each side of the building.


Although the physical plant of Holdenville High School has changed several times since the original school was built, high standards and quality education have been the foundation.
