Early Years Edit

When John Maves Middle School opened in the fall of 1926, it had a capacity of almost 3,000 students. 1926-1927 school year, it had about 2,200 students and 120 teachers. As the years went by leading into the 1930s, the school became more cramped and Spoonerville called for a new middle school. Spoonerville's second middle school, Forestwood Middle School was completed in 1937 which helped sustain students within the schools.
