History of Samuel Clemens High School:
Samuel Clemens from the beginning
The Beginning: The history of Samuel Clemens starts in 1917 at Schertz High School, which was on loop 539 in Cibolo then in 1952 it was moved to Main Street in Schertz. The first graduating class had two members. The school consisted of four classrooms downstairs and one upstairs, along with a large auditorium. The heating was an old woodstove and the air conditioning was an open window. The school is so small that two grades fit into one classroom. The restroom was outdoors.
Becoming Samuel Clemens: In 1961, the board of Trustees came to a decision at about three in the morning that the school district will become an independent school district. In 1967, the district annexed Universal City into the school district. All the band jackets had the letters SC for Schertz CIbolo, and it would cost to much to change it. So a contest was held to name the school using the Initials SC and Samuel Clemens was the winner. So in 1967 Samuel Clemens was established and built on Elbel Road in Schertz.
Construction: Samuel Clemens High School was built in seven segments. The original building and field house were completed in 1967. The first vocational building was constructed in 1970. Rapid growth required the north classroom wing and an addition to the field house in 1972. The second vocational building was added in 1974. The science, library and ROTC wings along with the practice gym were competed in 1990. Increase student growth required the construction of a new dining center, band hall, choir room, and additional classrooms in 1995. In 2008 the new science wing was completed with major renovations upgrades to the entire campus. Other addition include the Shelton Athletic Complex.
