Ogden City was still evolving when the first school was established in 1850 with Charilla Abbott as the first teacher. The school system continued to grow with public and private institutions accepting students. A bond issue passed in 1890 allowing for new buildings, including the showplace school, Central. Ogden High School called the “best and most attractive school in the world” was opened on October 29, 1937 after a cost of $1.2 million. Ogden High School and others still stand as proof of the community’s commitment to education.
