In 1887, it was removed to a new building on Saratoga Street, near Charles, now occupied by the Central Police Station. In 1892 the Colored Polytechnic Institute was established by the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore. By action of the School Board in 19900, the two schools were combined under a colored Principal and faculty. The enlarged curriculum included academic subjects, manual training, and normal courses for training teachers. The normal department was separated and set apart as a distinct school in November, 1909. The graduates of the Colored High School, from the beginning, have been prominent in all the activities of the community, and have helped to raise community standards in religion, in education, and in industry. The total number of graduates, exclusive of the class of 1921, is One Thousand Three Hundred Sixty-five (1,365). In addition to this, the school has served the needs to some extent, of many thousands more.”
