Friendswood schools are turning 75 this fall and much celebration is being planned at all campuses and within the community.
Friendswood was a small town of less than 300 in the fall of 1939. The new school served 118 students. The new brick building was the showpiece of the community, serving first through 11th grades. Three areas of funding made the construction possible: oil production royalties at the edge of the school district, government grant money and a bond issue.
