Woodrow Wilson Middle School Flyover and First Snow/South 25th Street, Terre Haute, IN, United States/This is a flyover of Woodrow Wilson Middle School in Terre Haute, IN. My grandmother, father, brother, and myself went to Wilson. Flying the drone over Woodrow Wilson Middle School. During flight, I captured Terre Haute's first snow of the season. The school was known as Third Street Intermediate School when it first opened in 1911, located on the parking lot of what today is the district Administration Center. In those days Wilson Avenue was called Third Street.On of the school's first principals was Richardson D. White, as in today's R.D. White Elementary School. White was later district superintendent.Originally, Third Street School accommodated only seventh and eighth graders in a two story brick structure with six classrooms and an auditorium. Later, eight classrooms were added.In 1913, Third Street was renamed Wilson Avenue by the City of Glendale. Thus, the name of the school was changed accordingly.In 1926, the Board of Education decided to rename the campus after former President Woodrow Wilson, who had died two years prior.In 1932, a ninth grade was added to the school, prompting a change in title (from "Intermediate School" to "Junior High School") and in location. The student body moved to the campus of Glendale High at Verdugo Road and Broadway (currently where the softball field and tennis courts are located). The former Wilson site became the District Headquarters.There, Wilson shared the GHS facility for 23 years until a new school was constructed on Monterey Road in 1955 - strictly as a junior high.In 1988, Wilson Junior High School earned the CALIFORNIA DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL AWARD from the California Department of Education. This award recognizes the academic achievement and improvement of students. Principal Jim Isenman accepted the award at a special presentation in Sacramento......wilsonknights.org
