You might have better results if this thread were in the Iowa forum area & not in the one that is specifically for Des Moines. I'd move it there for you if I were able to do so.
Good luck in your search here for info here as well as elsewhere.
By the way, the moderator for the Iowa forum is originally from Burlington. She now moderates here from her new home in Phoenix, Az.
Perhaps she knows sources in Burlington that could be of help for you.
On a final note, whenever I have looked at old high school year books that are of vintage era, or even mine (LOL!), they included freshman in as part of the high school. In more recent decades, the trend has been to move freshmen down into what is now usually called middle school.
