Secondary Schools.

The New Plymouth High School has been in existence since about the year 1883, and occupies a commanding site overlooking the town. The building is ornate, and affords excellent accommodation for the pupils in at tendance; and the grounds, which cover several acres, are well kept. The building contains four large class rooms, in addition to a room for the Principal, and there is an excellent gymnasium attached to the institution.

Mr. E. Pridham, M.A., Principal of the New Plymouth High School, is assisted by a well qualified staff, which includes a headmistress, in charge of the girls' department, first and second male teachers and female assistants.
