Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of materials assembled in preparation for, and following, a reunion of Summit School Alumni in 1988. It includes copies of class registers, photographs, teacher lists, clippings, ephemera and correspondence.
Summit School was the first public school in Mill Valley, and was also known as the Eastland School or the Mill Valley Grammar School. It I was built in 1892 as a one room schoolhouse on the corner of Summit and Cornelia Avenues, on land donated by the Tamalpais Land & Water Company. Summit School initially had 1 teacher and 35 pupils, in grades 1-8. In 1894 a second classroom was added, and in 1900 the main floor was expanded and a second floor was added. When Tamalpais Park School opened in 1939, the school was no longer needed; the building was demolished in 1941.
