West Reading High School

The West Reading High School building was built in 1914 at the corner of 4th and Franklin Streets. By 1923 an auditorium and a gymnasium were added to the high school. June 1969 was the last time that West Reading and Wyomissing Area graduated separate classes, as the two districts merged. Forty-seven seniors graduated from the last West Reading class in 1969. In 1972, a middle school for grades 5-8 is established in the West Reading High School building. By 1985, the West Reading High School building was sold and was renovated into an apartment building. If anyone has some old photos of this school in use I would love to see them! contact@berksnostalgia.com


Wyomissing School District

Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.
