HistoryEdit

Pine City High School was established in 1910, although the first graduating class from what is now Pine City High School was June 1, 1903, (the newly constructed Webster School). When the school was first built, many children who lived outside the city of Pine City attended local country schools and then in their later grades attended PCHS.
