About the Archiving Project.
The impending demolition of El Cerrito High School inspired a group of volunteer parents, alumni, community members, students and teachers to form the ECHS Archiving Project. This dynamic group of people quickly started the arduous process of gathering and preserving the 65 years of Old School history. Currently, there are more than 500 items catalogued. Some significant pieces from the old building were reinstalled in the new school. These include the original California Art tiles, gym clock and students’ art work. We currently support and care for our unique museum and the many department display cases located throughout the school. We also give annual college scholarships to graduating seniors. The project is on-going. Please join us in our continuing journey of preserving our school history.
