In 1970 the population was about 750,000 and Jefferson High School was still one of the best high schools in San Antonio. I believe Northside School District still had one high school, Northside High School. But things were about to change. There was a major purge at Jefferson forcing about 1/2 the teachers to move or retire. And Northside was beginning to get more population. Everntually NISD became the district with about 8 high schools and building schools every year while population trends changed forcing SAISD to start closing schools in recent years due to a lack of resources.

I went to high school and graduated in 1961. At that time Jeff was the best followed by Alamo Heights, Robert E. Lee.

I could really tell you more about the early 60's because I moved to Austin in 1963 and later to Houston in 1968. I returned to San Antonio in 1976 and lived here until 1999. I moved to St. Louis in 1999 and returned to the area in 2006. I now live in Seguin.

When I came to SA in 76', it did end at 410, 281 ended right in front of Trinity Univ. Wonderland Mall was the outskirts of SA, Windsor Park Mall was brand new. Helotes was like going out of town.

I lived in SA from 1960 to 1972. Big military town. Nothing outside of Loop 410. The northside was white affluent, west side hispanic, east side African American, and Southside a mix between middle and lower class. Has anything changed?

Yes! I could have said that! Just didn't want to point out the obvious.
