A high school in St. Petersburg
. It is the oldest High School in St. Petersburg and has an IB
program. The main building was finished in 1898 and the first graduating class was c/o 1901. It was heralded as the finest school building in the South, with a stage like the greatest theaters in the world.
The abundance of retirees in Florida has caused the state budget to focus away from public education, especially in the past fifty years, and the campaign to "Give the Devil his Due" is now underway, raising money for this fine highschool.
It now consists of not only the main building, but the Bell Science Building, the Social Studies and Media Building, the band building, the gymnasium and the cafeteria. Athletic fields are to the west. The main building, the oldest of them all is widely considered the most beautiful from an architectual standpoint. It is of a Spanish style and was designed by William B. Ittner.
