Stillwater High School is a secondary school located within Payne County in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

History[edit]

The first Senior Class graduated from Stillwater High School in 1901. The earliest students of Stillwater High School attended classes in the Alcott Building constructed in 1896 at Ninth and Duck Street. The Horace Mann School was built 1910 at the same location to accommodate expanding enrollments. The Stillwater High School or South High was built in 1918 at Twelfth and Duck Street. South High is considered by many to be the first real high school. The building has since been renovated and is part of the Stillwater Public Library. In the early 1940s, Stillwater High moved to the North High location at Ninth and Duck Street. This is the building that many refer to as the “Old High School.” It is now the Stillwater Community Center and location of the Stillwater/C.E. Donart Alumni Association and Museum.

By 1960 Stillwater High had a new location and a new name with the construction and dedication of the campus on North Main and Husband Street. Stillwater High School was renamed for Mr. C.E. Donart—honoring his fifty years of service as the clerk of the Stillwater Board of Education and his efforts to build the new high school. The school returned to the original name of Stillwater High School by 1982. Recent additions to the high school at the North Main and Husband location include the Performing Arts Center and Pioneer Stadium.
