To tbe Board of Education Gentle men : 1 hereby submit to you and tbe public my twelfth annual report of your schools for the year ending June 10, 1801. The following table gives, by schools, total enroilment,average dally attendance, per centof daily attendance, and tardiness for the year: S9 SCHOOLS. 3 High School.................

B Prtmarv fi h 3ft 6H W.4 W.7 C and DPrlm'r main bid C and D Primary, north.. 4.1 7 41 S7.0 OT.2 The summary shows sn enrollment of 254 boys and 247 girls, or s total of 501, an Increase of eight over last year. The av erage dally attendance wu 203.8 boys and 102.7 girls, or a total ol 896.5, as compared 1 with 304.4 last year. Tbe per cent of daily attendance was 07.0, as compared with 07 for last year. Tbete were during the year 73 cases of tardiness, while last year abowed 84. There were 10 boys snd 11 girls In the schools less than three months ss com- . psred with IS boys and 10 girls last year. There were during the year 41 boys and 50 girls withdrawn u compared with 81 -boys snd 41 girls for last year. This ap parent dropping out of the schools is si most wholly accounted for by removal from town or 111 health or by the attend ance of tuition pupils for only one or two terms. Of loreign pupils, there were en rolled during the year 54, an Increase over lut year of 10. The tultiuii fund lor the current year wu fC-5.30, s larger amount than has been received since 1880. Lut year the tuition fund wu 1533. There were during the year 40 boys snd 48 girls enrolled who were over 10 years of sge, 77 of whom were is tbe high school classes. Tbe average age of this year's graduating clou was 18 years Tbe average age of first year high school pu- pils taken last fall term was 14 5 years for tbe boys snd 15 yean for the girls. Oat of the 132 pupils enrolled during the year In the high school, 50 boys snd'01 girls remained on tbe roll till the close of the year, making s withdrawal ol 0 boys snd 13 girls. We especially (eel proud of tbe contin ued good attendance of our High School boys. Only one boy withdrew doling the first seven months of the year. For the number enrolled this Is sn unusually good record, and in view of which It is not dlfllcult to explain why our Alumni Asso ciation counts upon its roll in the seven teen commencements, 117 boys and 110 girls. Tbs abort statistical points are given, , not so much for what tbey may indicate ' ol the real'lnlellectual work of the schools, as for infoimallon to the public regarding such points ot school management u only j statistics will show. The daily work of , the schools is not so measured. If the I parents have examined, ss we trust they 1 have, the daily, term and promotion cards, j together with the various examination and ' test papers taken home by the pupils, tbey understand much better the real work of the schools, . . During the year just closed the tcscters j have been faithful and painstaking In f the work assigned. Tbs pupils have, for ! the most part, been studious snd courteous ' and tbe record of tbs year well compares 1 with that of any heretofore made. 1 , .. 4 ' Before the work begins sgaln In Sep- jf tern ber a new school catalogue nil) be published, and it Is the wish, ef the Board of Education that every patron of the schools msy possess s copy, so that all may fully acquaint thomselvea with the complete course of study aad with tbe rules and regulations gover alng tbe schools. , .
