Administrative History

The Provo City School District (1890- ) is a school district based in Provo, Utah.

The Provo City School District was created in Provo, Utah in 1890 through the merger of the five different school districts that were established between 1860-1861. It originally consisted of five schools: Central (Parker) School, East (Webster) School, West (Franklin) School, North (Page) School, and Far North (Mountain) School. Two years later, the first version of Timpanogos Elementary School was built and six years after Webster School was replaced by Maeser School-- named after Brigham Young Academy Dean Karl G. Maeser. In the 30s, the district added a vocational school, Dixon High, Farrer Junior High while replacing the campuses of Timpanogos and Parker (which was soon renamed Joaquin). Soon, Grandview Elementary was built in the 1960s and the vocational school became the present-day campus of Utah Valley University.

The district currently consists of three high schools, two middle schools, thirteen elementary schools, and six specialized schools throughout the Provo, Utah area. It is run by a 13-person administration led by Superintendent Keith C. Rittel.
