Grants Pass Public Schools.
Tho public schools of Grants Pass are organized and graded
according to the provisions of tho school laws of tho state.
The Primary Doiwrtment, consisting of tho First, Second, Third
and Fourth grades; The Grammar Department of the Fifth,
Sixth, Seventh mid Eighth grades; the High School, of the
Ninth, Tenth, Eleveutli and Twelvth grades.
As above indicated, the Board of Directors has very wisely
provided for a complete High School course, second to none iu
the state. This course will be put into the hands of a competent
corps of instructors, and with the hearty co-oiemtion and sup
port of tho patrons, the Board foels assured that the public
schools of this city will rank equal to tho best iu the state.
In adopting the High School course the Board has been domi
nated by the desire to make tho course as practical as possible,
and also to bring our high school into such close touch with the
Stato University and other institutions of higher education, as
to enahlo thoso of our graduates who desire to take a college
course, to enter such institutions at ouce without examination,
uiwti presentation of their High School diploma, and without
tho necessity of spending a year or two at some preparatory
school, at a considerable additional expense.
The criticism is often made that so much is crowded into
the school courses of to-day, that the ordinary pupil is not able
to do thorough and satisfactory work in the time allotted. In
this connection let it bo definitely understood that no lax, in
different, slip-shod work cither ou the part of teacher or puuil
will bo tolerated. The conditions for promotion and graduation
are such, that ho subject matter passed over must be thoroughly
mastorod, and though this course is full and complete, yet it
makes uo unreasonable demand upon the time and ability of the
pupil, and none but what faithful and punctual attendance upon
school work will enable tho ordinary student to accomplish
easily and creditably.

Though tho coin)iloti'ncH of thin courno is a aourco of gnitifi-
oiition, yot thcro in llttlo doubt but tlmt tho time is ncnr Bt
hnutl, if iiuli-cil it is not ulroudy lioro, wlicu the demand for
industrial tniiniiiff iu our jmblic whoola muat bo met.
Chililn-un.ro not (ontont wiHi rouding and thinking; they
yearn to bo doing Koniclliin. From the ago of aix to aixtot'ii
thcro iH, at prcHcnt ill most scliools, littlo for pupils but book.
There in no doubt whatever that many pupils, and eajii'Rially the
lHyn, pet a distusto for school, and leave it as soon as they can
find any work to do, and beforo they have obtained any educa
tion beyond tho ability to read, writu and cipher. How th"
combination of bead-work with band-work: can be effected, is
0110 of the educational problems that has been very satisfactorily
solved, by a goodly number of public schools of less pretentious
size than ours.
A knowledge of some form of industrial lalior is as neces
sary as a knowledge of books, and the community which ac
knowledges its obligation to teach children to read cannot logic
ally deny its obligation to teach them to work.
Tho Hoard of Directors chorishes tho bopo that in tho near
future they will bo able to further increase tho excellence and
utility of our schools, by adding a courao iu industrial training.
Not a little has liecn said of the inefficiency of school gradu
ates to make a practical application of their . menial acquire
ments in tho business world j ill other words, that much of
school work has but littlo practical relation to the demands of
every day life. While there is somo truth in such criticism,, yet
such conditions do not always arise from a defective course of
study, but from defective teaching.
Recognizing this fact it is tho purpose of the management
of our schools to Jrnow that all pupils when Ihey leave sclnsd
shall have Is en taught how to study, how to think and soar to ap
ply their knowledge. Thus eiuipcd, and with a fair know
ledge of the practical things of life, our Iniys and girls will take
front rank wherever tin y may be placed.
CtH'RSK OF STUDY.
The course of study in our primary and grammar schools is
intended to give a careful and thorough preiration iu the essen
tials of a good elementary education. This includes primarily
a thorough training in the use of correct Knglish ; the developing
of an appreciation for gMl literature, and a habit of careful
study; a thorough drill on the fundamental principle of Arith
metic; a good knowledge of the history ami development of our
country ; tho geography of America iu particular, with a good
general knowledge of the world; and llio beginning of a premr
atiou for projs r living in society, viewed from its broader as
!cct. The High School course, as has been intimated, was adopted
as being the one, in the opinion of tho Hoard of Directors, yield
ing the best practical returns, and at the same time as being the
one to lx-Kt articulalo with the courses of tho State University,
and other institutions of higher learning.
The following is an outline of the course for tho primary
and grammar grades:
