Agency History

The Spirit River Rural High School began operating when a second floor room was completed in the Spirit River School in 1929. The first teacher was Mr. Whittingham, teaching grades 8, 9, and 10. The next year K.M. McConkey taught grade 11 as well. Grade 12 was not offered until 1933-34. This high school district served the districts of Rycroft, White Mountain, Spirit City and Broncho Creek.
