History

In 1835, the Windham School Company founded Windham Academy as the 44th institution of secondary education in Ohio. The academy held classes in the building now known as the Brick Chapel in Windham. [cite web |url=http://www.history.portage.oh.us/windham%20hist%20soc.htm |title=Windham Historical Society |accessdate=2008-06-09 |publisher=Portage County Historical Society] Windham Academy operated for 18 years, and produced at least one notable graduate: Laurin D. Woodworth, former Representative for Ohio's 17th congressional district. [ [http://bioguide.congress.gov/scripts/biodisplay.pl?index=W000735 Laurin D. Woodworth's biography] at the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress] In the 1860's, two new elementary schools were founded in Windham, and the schools were connected to the nascent Ohio State Board of Education. In 1883, these schools produced their first high school graduates.cite web |title= History of the Windham Schools |date= 1998 |url= http://windham.sparcc.org/about2.html |publisher= Windham Exempted Village School District |accessdate= 2008-06-09 |archiveurl= http://web.archive.org/web/20040810042334/http://windham.sparcc.org/about2.html |archivedate= 2004-08-10]
