Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ... returning for second year in high school... I I Number in high school at mid-year, 1914...... 8 The foregoing data shows that of the 82 pupils making up the Transfer Classes in 1910-11, 66 remained in school at least another year, striving to earn a grammar school diploma, and that 54 won such diploma; that 41 of those winning diplomas admitting them to the high schools entered the freshman class in September, 191 1; that 30 returned for a second year's work; and that 18 were in school at mid-year, 1914.

The enrolment, less all transfer pupils, for entering classes to the Newton high schools for 1910 was 445. In other words, the first-year class in the high schools was increased by 20.2 per cent through special transfers. The total first-year enrolment for the public high schools of the United States for 1910-11 (Bulletin 22, 1912, p. 9, U. S. Bureau of Education) was 421,335. Had this total enrohnent been increased by Transfer Classes to the same extent as i11 Newton, the total entering enrohnent for the country would have been larger by 85,110 for the year 1910-1 1....show more
