Talk:Conroe High School
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Hi there! I just came across this page and noticed the founding date of 1961... I called my father (Class of 1961) and he said that the new campus didn't even exist until his brother was in school (10 years later). My mother's (Class of '63) Flare (The school's yearbook) clearly shows the Davy Crockett building. I am not sure where the 61 founding date came from, are we talking about the date that the new campus began construction? If so, there would be two "Conroe High Schools" from 1961 to 1969...
Complicating matters, Dad seems to recall calling the Davy Crockett building "Conroe High"... in fact it seems that everyone called the school "Conroe High", even my grandparents (Classes of '31,'32 and '33)seemed to call the school "Conroe High" even though the school was technically called "Davy Crockett High". The schools mascot, motto and colors haven't changed since my grandparents were in school. Should we simply add on the history of the school to the page and say that "Conroe High" has existed since the early 1900s, and leave it at that? I have a lot of photos and history of Conroe High that dates back to the early 1900s and I'd like to put them up here, but I don't know whether I should spin off the page or just add it here.

Founding Date Re: The current Conroe High School building completed construction before September of 1964 for the start of the 1964-1965 school year. My father graduated in 1968 and started Conroe High School as a freshman the first year it opened in 1964. Prior to that the " Davy Crockett High School " was considered and called Conroe High School by the majority of the residents in Conroe. My grand father and uncles all graduated from Conroe high or Crocket high in the 1930's. When the current Conroe High School was constructed, they changed the Crockett school to an intermediate school I believe. I feel that the entire page about Conroe High should be deleted and re constructed using only validated and factual information. Pictures would also be a great idea to add to the page. I do not think it would be very hard to call a Conroe High School official or local historian and get facts sorted from fiction on the actual history of Conroe High. As an alumni of Conroe High myself, I feel that the school deserves to have a fully factual, and well constructed page on here. I would do it myself, but I will admit first hand I am a pretty lazy guy.
On another note, my family has had season tickets to Conroe High Football games since 1964, and on the home coming day of 2004 during half-time, they even announced that it was the fortieth year of the schools construction there. Year books, students, all of these should be great references.
