A North Country school celebrated 100 years of education on Saturday.
The Chazy Central Rural School opened its doors in November 1916.
The school’s first graduating class had 7 students, with a total enrollment of no more than 150 students, school officials say.
Now, 460 students attend the school
"I am finding this an absolutely amazing experience to come back, and to see what our graduates have been doing, and seeing that the building is flourishing," said David Martin, a retired English teacher who taught for 33 years.
Saturday’s open house included artifacts from the past 100 years.
While today, the school has computers and internet, back in 1916, it had the modern technology of the time: electricity.
