CINCINNATI - Elder High School is celebrating 90 years of education on Cincinnati's West Side.
Students, faculty and alumni came together Wednesday night for a celebration mass.
"It's amazing just knowing that I'm a part of the best tradition on the west side of Cincinnati," said Elder junior Brandon Bell.
More than 20,000 students have graduated from Elder in its 90 year history. The school started in 1912 as a two-year school and expanded to a four-year institution in 1922.
Students say it's the relationship between the faculty and students that makes Elder a special place to go to school.
"You talk to them, they relate to you, they've seen it all so far, and they just really get to know you," said Elder sophomore Ryne Poli.
Elder staff says its planning more events to celebrate the school's 90-year history in the future.
