Nothing gives a glimpse into the past quite like a high school yearbook. Highlighted here are two local schools and Flagstaff’s biggest sports rivals. The following photos and pages include snapshots of student life at Flagstaff and Coconino High Schools; the collection spans from 1924 (the year after Flagstaff High School opened its doors) to 1991. Through a mix of yearbook photos and pages chronicling academics, sports, student organizations, school dances and events, the everyday life of students comes to the fore. The gallery begins with “Kinlani”, Flagstaff High School’s yearbook and is followed by Coconino’s yearbook, titled “Reflections”.
Coconino High School was founded in 1967, deriving its name from the county in which it stands. Coconino had 434 students at its zenith, according to a piece the Sun wrote that same year.
Flagstaff High School was founded in 1923, with its first yearbook appearing in 1924. The name for the yearbook “Kinlani” is a Navajo word and was used for the publication beginning in 1924.
