Submitter's notes: While San Francisco
High School is part of Lowell High School's history, the name "Lowell"
was not used until the 1890s. San Francisco High School's December
14, 1859 class included 13 girls and 27 boys, 11 of whom were graduates.
Principle Holmes said it was not lack of scholarship, but students were
lost to marriage and the accepting of teaching positions available in grammar
schools of the city.
