The yearbook gives a brief history of the school:
"The School" in Duenweg has always been the center of attraction and activity. The
first Duenweg School was called, "Harmony Grove" and was established in 1870.
The first graduating class was in 1900-1901 with Mr. H. W. Sterling, Principal.
Mr. Sterling has been identified with the progress of the Duenweg School, serving
as teacher, board member and district clerk. We are grateful! A salute to Mr. Sterling!
