TABLE OF CONTENTS
College High School was a demonstration school established on the grounds of the New Jersey State Teachers College at Montclair in 1929. The school was comprised of grades seven through twelve, with thirty students enrolled in each grade. Students were selected for admission to College High School by the Teacher’s College Department of Professional Integration, based on competitive examinations, capability to perform college preparatory work, recommendations and personal interviews. Classes at College High School were taught by professors from the Teachers College and observed by students from the college.
In 1968, as Montclair State College continued to expand its curriculum beyond Education, the college administration questioned the value of maintaining College High School. In 1969, the Board of Trustees voted to begin closure of the school, and in 1973, the last class graduated from College High School. The College High School building eventually became Morehead Hall, named after Montclair State’s former vice-president and provost marshal.
