The senior class has their individual portraits included, while grades nine through eleven are featured in small group portrait photos staged around the school.

In September 1951, Worthington High School moved to its current location. Prior to that, it was housed in the Packard Annex, which was built in 1916 and served as the high school until the new school was built to accommodate the post-World-War-II population boom.

The new school boasted such things as a “well equipped library, the fine chemistry laboratory, and the mimeographing room” which the students deemed lovely and modern.
