Photo from an early P’vill high yearbook. This photo shows the early Pleasantville High School, which was built in 1926 and demolished in 2006. An empty 9 acre lot remains. It had been replaced with a new high school at 701 Mill Road that opened in 1998. Several early yearbooks are available to browse through at the GEHTHS museum/library.

Before more local high schools were built due to the rise in population, students from many communities attended Pleasantville High School at Ansley and South Franklin Boulevard in Pleasantville. It served students from Mays Landing, Mizpah, Absecon, Egg Harbor Township, Linwood, Pleasantville and Northfield. Other early high schools in the area were the Egg Harbor High School in Egg Harbor City and the Atlantic City High School.
