Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The district began renovating the Chapman-Wilshire School site in 1983, formally opening in January 1984. Attendance topped the 2,000 student mark for the first month in operation at the New Wilshire Continuing Education Center. Despite sandblasting, excavation, and the general appearance of a deserted facility, the district still used portions of the old school site for classes. Courses offered in the renovated facility ranged from data processing to home economics, as well as high school diploma preparation, ESL, citizenship, and college basic skills. The property would go through another reconfiguration and renovation again in 2007-2008. (Courtesy of Fullerton Public Library.)
