History

Oxford Hills High School was founded in 1961 as part of a consolidation plan statewide for small schools. It combined Norway High School and Paris High School, then rivals. The school operated in the previous school buildings until 1966-67, when a new school was built nearby. In 1998, the school integrated local technical classes and the core curriculum, creating the current institution.[2]

The School now encourages excellence in various technically diverse aspects of profession to allow training in many fields through the tech programs.
