The History of Minford Local Schools
1970 to 1999

The 1970's brought big changes to Minford High School. A new building was constructed, and for the first time in the school's history, grades 9 - 12 had a separate structure in which to attend classes.

The Class of 1970 was the first to graduate from the new building. The Class of 1974 was the first to attend all four years in the new building.

As time passed, however, the new building was plagued with problems. The underlying ground was not sturdy enough to support a three-story building. Floors began moving, walls began cracking, and it was evident that this new building was not going to last as long as the previous high school building.
