In 1813 the Honesdale Academy which was a private preparatory school and the forerunner of the Honesdale High School, was founded. In 1875,the first class was graduated from a public high school in Honesdale. Honesdale’s first modern building constructed for school purposes was opened in 1909. In 1924, the consolidation of six political subdivisions formed the first union school district in Pennsylvania. On April 6, 1959 the present high school building was constructed. In 1970, under the School District Reorganization Act, the district was again expanded. The new name became the Wayne Highlands School District.
Far above historic Irving with its rugged crest
Stands our noble Alma Mater in its sheltering rest
It has gained though years of toiling
Honor and renown
Raise the chorus, speed it onward,
Lout its praises sing;
May recalling Honesdale High School
Thoughts most pleasant bring.
