Honor Roll: Alexandria, Virginia, George Washington High School

There is a World War II Honor Roll for former George Washington Middle School students who lost their lives during World War II. When the school opened in 1935 it was a high school and consolidated two former schools into one. In 1971 in the wake of integration, the City of Alexandria reassigned all high school juniors and seniors to T. C. Williams and freshmen and sophomores to Francis C. Hammond and George Washington. In 1979 grades 7-9 were added to the student population and the schools became middle schools. Later, grade 6 was added.
