Ogden History



Ogden High School building exterior Ogden High School, Home of the Tigers, celebrates a rich 100-year tradition of high achievement in academics, activities and the community. Students, staff and teachers are supported by an involved and caring community that seeks excellence to honor this legacy.

Ogden High School is the home of the International Baccalaureate program in Ogden, which is a magnet for students throughout the area who seek a rigorous high school academic experience. The school also provides extensive opportunities for all students to be involved in extra-curricular activities including theater, arts, clubs and guilds and athletics.

In 1935, the construction of Ogden High School began under the umbrella of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) at an unheard of price of $1.2 million. The school was designed by Hodson and MeClenahan who utilized the new design “art deco” specifically “classical moderne,” a Greco-Roman style with Deco elements popular in government and civic buildings at the time, such as the Ogden Municipal building.

The school was completed on September 17, 1936 and opened the following year in August of 1937. An estimated 3,000 people attended the dedication ceremony in the new auditorium on October 29, 1937 where the speaker referred to the building as, “ the structure that caught the rhythm of the Rockies because of its mountainous setting that reflected a ruggedness in an intricate design of beauty.”

In the summer of 2007, OHS began an extensive remodel costing nine million dollars. The project was completed in three phases, taking six years, and moved the gym to a separate building, created a science wing and renovated/updated the school’s infrastructure. The auditorium was also renovated as a separate project and serves as one of the premier examples of Art Deco in the United States.

OHS today is a daily reminder of the creative vision and dedication of the educational leaders in 1937.
