Letter: Junior high had a 10th grade in 1956

In a letter to the editor that was published Nov. 16, Don Mazen wrote that in 1950 La Cañada Jr. High School had grades 7 and 8, with grades 9 and 10 attending other junior highs in Pasadena until 1957.

This is incorrect. La Cañada Jr. High included grades 7 through 10 when I attended it. I know because I graduated from 10th grade from this school in 1956. We then went to John Muir in Pasadena for grades 11 and 12.
