By the time Fresno's first high school graduating class took the stage at the old Barton Opera House in 1891, the seven students were well-schooled in English, science, history, math and four years of Latin.

They left behind three teachers and a principal – T.L. Heaton, who was also superintendent of Fresno City Schools.
