Robert E. Lee High School is a public secondary school in Montgomery, Alabamamarker, USAmarker, serving grades 1012. The school is part of the Montgomery Public Schools system.

History

In January 1953, the Montgomery Board of Education purchased of property on Ann Street for $74,000 for a new high school. The new school would alleviate overcrowding at Sidney Lanier High Schoolmarker and accommodate children coming to Montgomery due to Maxwellmarker and Gunter Air Force Basesmarker. The final cost of the new facility was nearly $1.25 million.

Lee High School opened to students for the first time on September 6, 1955. The new school had thirty-five faculty members and approximately 800 students. Most of the 232 juniors and 173 seniors entering Lee were transfers from Lanier, and some 354 sophomores moved up from area junior high schools. Lee's first graduating class consisted of 144 students.

Expansion

An auditorium was added in 1963. The guidance office, lunchroom, and library were enlarged and the math wing and mini-gym were added during the 1970s. By 1979 rooms were air conditioned, after students and teachers raised the necessary $80,000. In 1992, the library underwent extensive renovation and the entire school received a new roof. In 1997, land behind Lee formerly occupied by apartments was donated to the school, and in 2000 the space was completely paved to provide parking. In the summer of 2002, the entire school system was networked and wired with fiber optic cable to provide better and faster internet and network capabilities.
