On January 21, 1888 school district 94 was formed.  The school house was centrally located on Section 14, Sherman Township, Range 28.  It was also known as Sherman School, Logan School, and Van Pelt School.    This school still is on the same location as when organized.

The first school was held in 1888 in the sod home of John Logan.  In 1893 a one room sod school house was built.  The roof caught on fire during school hours.  But the teacher and older pupils removed everything from the room without loss of anything.  A one room frame building was then built with modern seats, black boards, and teacher's desk.
