Central-Hower High School

The name of Central-Hower High School was adopted in 1970 when the student bodies of Central High School at Forge Street and Hower Vocational School at Exchange Street were merged into a new high school facility on the site of the old Central building. Both of the original schools have a rich tradition. The original Central building on the Forge Street site opened in 1886. Known as Akron High School, the school was renamed Central High School in 1911 when the Akron Board of Education opened a second high school ― South. Hower Vocational School was named for M. Otis Hower (1858-1916), an Akron manufacturing leader. He was an officer of the American Cereal Co. (the forerunner of the Quaker Oats Co.) as well as many other area enterprises. Central-Hower High School was constructed in 1973 (the 1924 auditorium was included in the new complex) and opened in September 1975. The school closed at the end of the 2005-06 school year and served as swing space during the district's renovation/rebuilding project.
