Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Saturday, 23 November 2019 is Samoana High School.
Samoana High School (SHS) is a senior high school in Utulei, a community in Maoputasi County, Eastern District, American Samoa. It is a part of the American Samoa Department of Education. It opened in 1946 as High School of American Samoa, making it the first such school in the territory. It was established through the efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Matsinger from Kamehameha Schools in Hawai'i. Success was immediate and twenty graduates went on to colleges on the mainland or Hawai'i after the first two years. New buildings for the school were dedicated on May 20, 1949. In a 1975 hearing in the U. S. Congress the school was referred to as the "Downtown" high school of American Samoa. Around that period the enrollment was expected to increase to 800-1,000. A fire in 1979 burned down the school.
