1908 - 1983

Coalinga School built in 1908 was five times larger than Coalinga's first school. Over the years it became affectionately known as the Polk Street school. Not long after the school was first built, a fire burned the original bell tower. The replacement tower is on display at the Baker Museum in Coalinga.
A November 28, 1941 article in the Coalinga Daily Record headlines "Polk Street Pupils Go To New School" (The Sunset School of today). While the Polk Street school is being terminated as a public school building it will not be abandoned. The Board of Education plans to transfer the Youth Community Center from the old Sunset to Polk Street and dispose of the old Sunset property.
