Biographical / Historical

The Morgan Park School began in 1915 as an eight-grade elementary school, meeting in residential buildings on the corner of C Avenue (Falcon Street) and 3rd Street (87th Avenue West). In 1916, the school moved into its new building at the present day location, 1243 Eighty-Eighth Avenue West, and formally opened on March 15, 1917. The first graduation commencement for high school was in 1922 and consisted of 12 students. The school motto is "Seek the Truth." The school had a fire in April 1970, but was repaired. Morgan Park currently serves as a middle school.
