Sayler Park High School
Sayler Park originally was known as Home City. The
name was changed in 1911 when it was annexed to Cincinnati. The first school in
Home City was on Parkland Avenue and was constructed in 1883 and housed both
elementary school and high school (1st photograph in row above). This building
was added to in 1900. High school was conducted in this building until 1912
when, on January 1, the school became part of the Cincinnati Public School
District. All high-school students were then transferred to Hughes High School.
The school, at that time, can be seen in the postcard in the 1st row above.
The Home City School was closed in 1929 when a new school, Sayler Park School was opened at 6684 Home City Avenue that can be seen in the center aerial photo above. The building you see to the left of the school is the Sayler Park Community Center. In 2010 after more than 80 years of use the school started construction on renovating and adding additional buildings which nearly doubled the size of the old school. Students used modular buildings behind the old school for two years until it was finally completed. See the last aerial image above.

Seaton High School started out as Mount St. Vincent Academy in 1854, when it opened in the Sisters of Charity convent called Cedar Grove. This all-girls school was a sister school to the all-boys academy in neighboring Delhi, Mount Alverno. The convent, built in the 1840s, was originally the home of the Alderson family. Harrison Alderson was a judge and the home was known as the Cedars, and is located on what is now Glenway Avenue. In 1927 the name was changed to Seton High School after Elizabeth Ann Seton the founder of the Sisters of Charity. In 1963 St. Elizabeth Seton Hall was erected for use by the freshmen on Vincent Avenue. Enrollment decreased and by 1980 the freshman hall was closed. The school is still teaching young women.
Western Hills High School Not a postcard
Western Hills High School was constructed in 1928 at 2144 Ferguson Road (the 2 wings were added in 1938). When the school first opened it was a combined junior-senior high school. In the mid 60s the construction of two new Junior High Schools (Dater and Roberts) was completed and Western Hills then became a senior high school only.
Whittier Public School Osage & Woodlawn, Price Hill

Robert Taft High School Vine Street School
Fairview Public School School AKA 12th District School AKA Warner Street School
The Warner Street School as the postcard states was built in 1888 at 255 Warner Street on the corner with Stratford Avenue. It was really called Fairview Public School. The annex, seen in the last photo, was added in 1957-58 and originally contained a gymnasium and library. It later became known as Fairview German Bilingual School. In 2002 this part of the school was moved to new Buildings in Clifton, while the original school building was closed in 2008. Both structures have been sold for redevelopment. In 2010 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Wyoming Public Schools
Present day photographs of Middle School
There has been a school for over 100 years where the Wyoming Middle School stands at 17 Wyoming Avenue. I do not know what schools the two cards in the top row represent so the information that follows is not accurate. If someone could help me with some information on those two structures I will correct this section. Finding any information has proven difficult. In 1889-90 the building you see in the first RPPC was built and lasted until construction began on a new school. World War I delayed construction so the east wing was constructed first for the high school and then the west wing was erected for the elementary grades. Then the central marble staircase connecting the two wings was finished and was dedicated in 1928.
Liberty Hill School (1st District School)
The 1st District School was built in 1867 at 412 Liberty St. (near Broadway) and was closed in 1945. The building is now being used for condominiums (last 3 non-postcard images).
6th District School
The Sixth District School, built in 1896, was located on the corner of Elm and Odeon Sts. (north of 15th Street). This was one of 40 bilingual schools in Cincinnati before WWI. A principal there was Dr. Heinrich H. Fick, later Superintendent of the German Department of the Public Schools. It is now the Elm Street Health Center. The 2nd image is not a postcard.

18th District (Washington) School Camp Washington
The 18th District school was located at 1326 Hopple Street. This building was razed and there is a gas station and Subway at this location now. Despite the building no longer standing it is still listed with the National Register of Historic Places (3-3-1980). The last two images above are not postcards.
22nd District Room 17 Not a postcard
These are not postcards
The 22 District School (Cummins) built in 1872 is located at 824 William H. Taft Rd. in Walnut Hills. Another building designed by Samuel Hannaford, it was used by the Cincinnati Public Schools as a model for later school construction due to its useful and economical floor plan. For instance the Eighteenth District School in Camp Washington (1872) was built using these plans extensively. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 9, 1986. It is currently being used for offices and a daycare facility.
