Reminiscences by Hoffman-Boston Teachers, Students and Parents
Hoffman-Boston High School was created in South Arlington as a segregated junior high school for African Americans. It later served as the County’s first high school, and closed after graduating its last full class in 1964.
The school was later reopened as Hoffman Boston Elementary in the Oakridge neighborhood, and remains part of the Arlington schools system.
The program included screening of footage of the 1964 Hoffman-Boston Homecoming celebration, depicting the queen’s court, parade and homecoming football game, which Mr. Milton Rowe Sr. has donated to the Virginia Room.
