Catonsville High School Wikipedia
Catonsville High School is located on 421 Bloomsbury Avenue at the intersection with South Rolling Road, having a Catonsville, Maryland, mailing address. The school was named after the unincorporated area of Catonsville.
The original school can trace its roots to Catonsville School, formed in 1903. Students were taught at the original brick building until 1910, when a large new school was dedicated to relieve overcrowding. In 1925, Baltimore County purchased land and buildings from the Catonsville Country Club with the intention of making it the new high school.
In 1954, a new building was dedicated at the school's current location. The campus was originally the "Farmlands" estate, owned in the 19th century by Theodore Lurman. The Lurman Woodland Theater on the school's grounds is named in his memory.
The school benefited from a 77,000-square-foot (7,200 m2) expansion in 1999. There have been other upgrades and renovations to many of the structures to keep the building as modern as possible.
Since the 1990s, the graduation rate at Catonsville High School has ranged from 94% in 1998 to a low of 83% in 2001. Student enrollment has also increased since 1993:
