Mimico High School was built to accommodate the growing Town of Mimico in the 1920's.
In September of 1921, students went to the Mimico Continuation School,
which used part of John English School for its students.

1923 saw the creation of the "High School Board", and the original 8 rooms of Mimico High School were built.
In September of 1924, Mimico's first Principal, E.H. Glenn and his team of 5 teachers began
the school year with 160 students.

Two additional staff members were added to the faculty in 1925

MHS Closed its doors in 1988

The Principals of MHS from 1924 - 1988

Flt. Lt. David Hornell, V.C.


MHS began its history in part of the old John English building.
It seems only fitting that these hallowed halls are now being used to house the current
John English Public School.
