History

Establishment

Vassie James Hill, founder of The Pembroke Hill School
Vassie James Hill, founder of The Pembroke Hill School

Vassie James Hill, born Vassie James in 1875, was a prominent Kansas Citian. She had graduated from Vassar College in 1897, first married Hugh Ward, a rich pioneer's son, and after he died married educator Ross Hill, who formerly had been president of the University of Missouri. Hill was dismayed at the lack of nonsectarian private education in Kansas City, as at that time those of means in Kansas City commonly sent their children to boarding schools on the east coast.

A boarding school is a usually fee-charging school where some or all pupils not only study, but also live during term time, with their fellow students and possibly teachers. ... Regional definitions vary from source to source. ...


Seeking a similar education for her three sons in Kansas City, Hill proceeded to arrange funding from twelve prominent Kansas City businessmen in 1910 and founded the Country Day School for boys, accepting both day students and boarders (although boarding ceased in the 1950s). Initial enrollment was 20 students and grew to 52 within three years. Several years later, the Country Day School merged with the Pembroke School for boys to form the Pembroke-Country Day School for boys, establishing itself on the Country Day School's large campus along State Line Road. Commonly, it was referred to as "Pem-Day". Year 1910 (MCMX) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Friday [1] of the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ... State Line Road is a major north/south street in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area that runs along the Kansas/Missouri border. ...


In 1913, Hill sought the same sort of education for her daughter and founded the Sunset Hill School for girls (named after the neighborhood in which it was located). The school established itself on a large campus overlooking what was then the location of the Kansas City Country Club (today Loose Park), including a portion of the battlefield from the Battle of Westport. Year 1913 (MCMXIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Tuesday of the 13-day-slower Julian calendar). ...

Merger

From the start, Sunset Hill and Pembroke-Country Day existed in common. Often, teachers taught at both schools. For generations, many Kansas City families would send their boys to Pem-Day and their girls to Sunset Hill. School activities, such as plays and dances, often were combined. For other uses, see Play (disambiguation). ...


Given this cooperative environment, in the early 1980s the two schools began merger discussions. Finally, in 1984, Pem-Day and Sunset Hill merged to become the Pembroke Hill School, although the class of 1985 elected to have separate graduation ceremonies. True co-education began the next year. The former Sunset Hill campus became home to preschool through sixth grade, and the former Pem-Day campus became home to seventh grade through twelfth grade.

In 2000, however, the Missouri State High School Activities Association stripped the school of the titles after the Kansas City Star revealed, in a much-publicized local scandal, that promoter and AAU coach Myron Piggie had made cash payments to two of the school's star players, Kareem Rush and his brother JaRon Rush.[8] In 2006 and 2007, the girls' basketball team won their Missouri Class 2 state title.

The Pembroke Hill School - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1573 words)
Pembroke Hill is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
Hill was dismayed at the lack of nonsectarian private education in Kansas City, as at that time those of means in Kansas City commonly sent their children to boarding schools on the east coast.
In 1913, Hill sought the same sort of education for her daughter, and founded the Sunset Hill School for girls.
