School history: Founded in 1917 on the city's south side along the San Antonio River near the King William neighborhood, the school was named for George Washington Brackenridge. The original three-story structure was demolished, re-built, and re-named (Phillis Wheatley High School) in the 1970s. In 1988, the school's original name was restored. Read more here.
