The discovery of oil near the Kern River in 1899 brought people to the area, creating a boomtown such as Oil Center, Oil City and Oildale.

The Standard School District was formed in 1909. Standard Oil Company donated five acres of land for a new school near Oil Center.

This schoolhouse designed by architect Orville L. Clark in 1911 was originally located on Oil Center Road. The building was moved to a new school site on North Chester Avenue in 1918.

Over the years, this schoolhouse served a variety of functions until Standard School District donated the building in 1991.
