1929: THE NEW $2,500,000 DOLLAR TRENTON HIGH SCHOOL IS APPROVED
Trenton High School is one of Trenton's few remaining historic treasures. There has been talk of demolishing that historic red brick structure and replacing it with a newer building. As I page through thousands of pages of local Trenton newspapers from the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's, I find countless uplifting articles and photos of THS students who went to school to learn, participate in the many extra-curricular activities including the annual operetta, sports night, and other activities. Pride and discipline were just two of the pillars that contributed to the school's educational excellence. I have searched in vain for negative articles relating to incidents or cases where police were regular visitors to the school to restore law and order; that search was in vain.
