REPORT OF TEACHER

      There has been no special course of study arranged by the Board of Education. As it is now, pupils before graduation are required to take, beyond the branches required for a common school diploma, Elementary and Higher Algebra, Latin is optional. It is expected, in the near future, that a special course of study will be prepared equal to the preparatory course at the University. The length of the term will also be increased. The attendance during the past term was goos. Patrons took an interest and every department of the the school did good work.
