Paso Robles High School Tennis courts

prhs_1892This farm boy was scared to begin high school. The Senior class initiated the Freshman the third week of school. I was not very familiar with the school but had attended various community functions in the auditorium over the years. But I was not familiar with the campus.

The brick building had been built in 1924 in a camping park. The front faced Spring Street which was busy Highway 101 with its diesel trucks and vehicular traffic. The walls were covered in ivy. The first high school was a three storied building built in 1892 at what is now the Marie Bauer School. The third story was removed after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. This new high school was two story on the half facing the Highway. On the north end on the second floor was the library and study hall and one large classroom on the south end. On the second floor one could walk down the enclosed hallway and look to the west over the roof of the first story rooms. Large pictures lined the second floor wall with classes from the 1920’s and 1930’s. The school cafeteria was the first room on the north second floor with the chemistry room next to it. The building had been strengthened with steel beams and ties after the large 1933 Southern California earthquake. During my Sophomore year in 1952-1953, the outer layer of bricks were jackhammered off, steel reinforcing tied on the walls and gunite concrete shot onto the iron grid to strengthen the building.PRHS photo courtesy of width= The bricks and ivy look was gone.

I entered Paso Robles High School in September, 1951. My father had attended the school in 1927 and 1928. It was the first time we changed classes every period. Mr. Quade was our principal, a quiet, reserved gentleman. Miss Zaph was the freshman English teacher. It seems to me we spent a good deal of the time studying careers and determining what we wanted to be in life. She was a bear. Her room was upstairs. She sucked on candy all the time as she smoked and had a dry voice. She watched us students with an eagle eye to catch anyone chewing gum or sucking candy.

I was on a college tract and had algebra with Miss Beeler. I never did get the hang of that math. I had her for bookkeeping my Senior year and enjoyed the class. My Spanish teacher was a Frenchman from Quebec. Learning Spanish with a French accent was difficult for us gringos. Band was a lot of fun and we met in the orchestra pit in the front of the auditorium. We played at pep rallies, half-time football games and concerts in the Spring. Mr. Whitesides was my band teacher 10th through 12th grade. I played a trombone all the years except in 12th grade when I played the sousaphone. Our first parade each year was the Pioneer Day Parade in October. In the Spring we traveled to a band festival in either San Francisco or Fullerton.
