HIGH SCHOOL RECOMMENDED By Committee of Ten Citizens,- and °ub lic Committee Adops Without Dis senting Vote. A public meeting was held in the High School on Tuesday evening when the following report was adopted: We, the undersigned, committee ap-. pointed by the voters at the hast annual School Meeting to ascertain the neces sity of re-establishing a high school in tbs (Borough and report the same at a public meeting to be called by the Com mittee. We therefore respectfully report: 1st. That we have had several meet ings and at one of the meetings we were attended bv County .Superintendent Cressman and received from him excel lent instruction and advice. 2nd. We further report that in our judgment, based upon whit we learned from Mr. Cressman. and from inquiries made from many eitizeiis of our Bor ough, that the High (School should be re-established. 3d. We further report that steps should lie immediately taken to pro cure sites for the same and ret^nunend the purchase of the land occupied by Elwood (Adams, and a portion of the lot of land directly back of the present school property, the amount necessary we leave to the judgment of the Board of Education. 4th. We recommend that the High School be established for the coming .School term and request that the Board of (Education take the necessary steps to do so, and to act in conjunction with the County Superintendent in carrying out tlie desires of this committee. .►tli. We recommend a High School equal in every manner to the High School in IHammonton which was high ly recommended by the County Superin tendent., which is a four years’ course, but we are advised that our present school buildings are inadequate at this time for a course like Haimuonbon, and we are further advised that a three years’.course will meet the present needs. 'We therefore recommend the ex penditure of $50,000 for a new High School building and site for the same, that a high school such as the town of Hammonton now enjoy* may be built at an early day. 6th. We are further advised that the present High iSchool building is adequate for a three years’ course and recom mend a three years’ coufse for one year and that a suitable building be built for a four years’ course that we may have an up-to-date High School. 7th. Our judgment is and we respect fully report that Tleasantville is large enough to have a High School and that our children should have equal advan tages with the children of any other municipality without leaving the Bor ough to obtain them. Hth. We recommend that the Board of Education take immediate steps to carry into effect the recommendations set forth jn this report.
