New Albany High School is a public high school located in New Albany, Indiana, United States. Founded in 1853, it is one of the oldest public high schools west of the Alleghenies and the first in Indiana.[citation needed] The school was the first FM high school radio station (88.1) to be licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)[citation needed] and has had its own Public-access television cable TV channel WNAS-TV since 1980. It is a part of the New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated School Corporation.

The school serves New Albany and surrounding unincorporated areas.[3]

History[edit]

The school opened in 1853 as the first high school in Indiana. The school was operated on an irregular basis, and closed for years at a time. During part of the American Civil War, the school building was leased to the federal government, to be used as a hospital for soldiers. Continuous operation of a school has occurred since 1864 (though in varying locations). The final current location of the school was established in 1928. [4]

Charles Allen Prosser attended and later ran the school as superintendent from 1900 to 1908, where he would form many of his opinions that would revolutionize teaching nationally in the decades to follow. [5]

Athletics[edit]

New Albany has won two basketball state championships, one in 1973 and one in 2016.[6]

Media[edit]
