Canadian High School

A WPA project led to the building of the Tom L. Hoover High School on the grounds of the old Canadian Academy.  The city donated land and erected a football stadium behind the new gymnasium.  This school would become know as Canadian High School.

As the oil and gas industry boomed, the community grew, and progressive changes were necessary. Classes were added, teachers hired, and the curriculum expanded. The school board believed every child was the promise of a progressive future for the community. They used their vast financial resources to build upon that promise for progress. In 1975, Canadian opened the football season in a natural bowl stadium.  On the original football field, the new Canadian High School would be built, becoming what is now the home of the Wildcats.

The former high school was renovated, becoming Canadian Middle School.
