Named after William N. Barringer, Supervisor of Newark Schools

        Here are the results of Charles McGrath's research of the oldest Public High Schools in the United States.

1) Boston Latin School of Boston , MA.  it was founded April 23,1635.

2) Central High School of Philadelphia, PA. it was founded in 1838.

3) Barringer High School of Newark, N.J. it was founded in 1838.

4)  Baltimore City College "Public High School" of Baltimore , MD 'was founded in 1839.  ( They claim that they are the third oldest public high school in the United States. ) But maybe they never heard of Barringer High School.

Therefore Barringer High School was the third if not the second oldest high school in the United States.
