• Note: Much of the history of the Richmond Public Schools was recorded in the context of a segregated society, and the reader should readily discern between pre- and post-desegregation observations. The terms "black," "colored," "Negro," and "white" in this booklet should not be considered offensive as they have been used according to the custom of the particular period. Since 1962, the division has omitted such racial designations from its reports and publications.

  • 11th & Bainbridge Streets

    This building was acquired by the annexation of Manchester in 1910. The high school was discontinued and the pupils transferred to John Marshall. The elementary section was thereafter called Powhatan School.
