Do You Know….The History of the Edgewood City Schools?
The Edgewood City School District was formed in 1970 and began operations in coordination with the opening of Edgewood High School. The district is the result of the consolidation of three adjacent school districts. Those being Wayne Townships Schools (formerly Jacksonburg Schools), Seven Mile Schools, and Trenton Schools, each rich in their own histories.
The Jacksonburg School District was founded in 1870 and consisted of up to 10 separate school buildings at one time or another during its history. A number of these small schools are still standing and can be seen throughout the Wayne Township area. The Jacksonburg District’s last operating school came to be known as the Wayne Township School. This building became Wayne Elementary as part of the Edgewood District and remained in operation until 1987.
The second district involved in the 1970 consolidation was the Seven Mile School District. Records indicate a Seven Mile School was in existence as early as 1830, but the first formal commencement was not held until 1896, with a graduation class of three. Seven Mile High School was home to the first electrically lit football field in Butler County back in 1947. In 1960, Seven Mile High School and Wayne Township School consolidated and they collectively became known as the Shiloh School District. The junior and senior high school students from both former districts attended Seven Mile School, while the grade school children used the Wayne building.
The third partner in the Edgewood District triad, Trenton, began back in 1827. The first one-room log schoolhouse was located just north of the State and Miami Streets intersection. As Trenton grew, a second separate school district evolved for Trenton’s south side. The northern Trenton District was District #9 and the southern district (south of State Street) was District #10. In the fall of 1928, the two merged into one district. In 1937, the Busenbark Special School District was also transferred to the Trenton Schools. The Trenton District owned and operated a number of schools and buildings within the city.
In 1970, Shiloh Schools (formerly Wayne Township and Seven Mile) joined with the Trenton schools and became the current Edgewood School District, with the opening of the new high school on Oxford State Road. Edgewood Middle School was completed in 1992, and the district’s elementary buildings were then remodeled and refurbished with additional classrooms. The original high school was also updated with the addition of 22 classrooms, a new gymnasium, and an auditorium.
In August 2012, we entered into a new era with the construction of a 215,000-square-foot state-of-the-art high school building at the south end of Busenbark Road. This building was equipped with 21st-century technology to provide resources for our students and teachers that align with today’s educational standards.
We are proud of our past, busy with the present, and excited about what the future holds for the Edgewood family.
