Notable events[edit]

On September 16, 1990, two juveniles broke into the school and vandalized it, leaving a burning cigarette near an overturned oil lamp, leading to a fire that caused over $3 million in damage to the building.[5] As a result of the fire, classes were temporarily relocated to the I-X Center, an exhibition center in nearby Cleveland.[6]
