Trainer School was built in 1880 on the south side of Post Road, opposite Main Street. Classes were held there until 1923 when the property was sold to the Sinclair Refining Co. which is now B.P. Oil Co. It still stands and is used by the B.P. Oil Co. as an adjunct to the office building. In 1923 a new school was erected on the north side of Post Road, and it is this one that Trainer youngsters have attended ever since it was built. After World War II, rooms, and an auditorium, and gymnasium were added. At present the faculty consists of a Principal, 10 teachers, plus three special teachers for Art, Music and Gym.
An Old Trainer resident says that the school was an outgrowth of over-crowded conditions at the old Rock Hill School which was located where the FMC Corporation is today. While it was being built, Trainer youngsters attended classes in a frame building on the east side of Market Street.
