History

In 1922 Francis Joseph Reitz pledged the money for the school to be built, but didn't start until he found the perfect site for this school. He finally found a 13-Acre lot off of Lincoln Avenue.


The school was originally staffed by Brothers of the Holy Cross, who also founded the University of Notre Dame, in the boys' section of the school, and Daughters of Charity for the girls' section.


The original gym was located on the Auditorium's stage, where basketball games were played. Finally in 1969 the school did some remodeling, and added expanded first and second floors, a band room, a library, and a gymnasium that could hold up to 2,000 people. It was at that point when the school "integrated," having boys and girls in the same classrooms.


The format of the school pretty much remained the same until 1998, when a new addition, costing roughly $5 million would be added. The new wing, also known as "the west wing" added eight more classrooms, two art studios, two science labs, a wrestling room, a second smaller gymnasium, and a media center. This media center was home to new computers, a large amount of books, and a place where students could study quietly throughout the day. They also did some additions to the older part of the building. The entire school was finally hooked up with heat and air conditioning, as well as all new windows throughout the school.


The final renovations increased the student capacity to 900 students.


Academics

Reitz Memorial High School has often been known for its high academic standards. In the 2001-2002 school year, it was recognized with a Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence in Education. This is an award not given out very often (only a few thousand schools have achieved this honor). It recognizes schools that "are models of excellence and equity, that demonstrate a strong commitment to educational excellence for all students, and that achieve high academic standards." The Blue Ribbon Schools Program is a United States government program created to honor schools. ...
