D.C. Everest School district was consolidated in 1950, and after nearly two years of combined efforts on the part of Administrators, School Board Members, and interested citizens in the area, a Union High School District, for bonding purposes, and Common School District #1 were organized. Since the original consolidation, Hatley joined the district in 1961 and the Town of Easton in 1962. Prior to 1953, the district operated a K-10 school in Rothschild, a K-8 school in Schofield, and smaller one-room rural schools in the Townships of Weston, Wausau, and Kronenwetter. D. C. Everest High School is a relatively young school, opening it doors to students in the fall of 1953, with a 9-12 enrollment of 388 students.

At the same time the Weston Elementary School was built and a wing added to the existing Schofield Elementary School. In the mid 1960's, it became evident that a new school facility was needed. In October 1966 the community approved the purchase of 63 acres of land at a cost of $105,000. Initially the thought was to build a new middle school; however, the school board later decided to build a new senior high school. An active citizens committee convinced the public that the board's plan was too costly and a better structure could be built. In January 1968, voters turned out to defeat a proposed $4,950,000 building by a count of 3,513 to 501. In April 1968, after much discussion and revision, a $4,000,000 structure was approved by a vote of 2,173 to 1,847. That started the largest building program in the history of our district. The final cost for the new senior high school was $4,325,327. The additional cost was partially funded through private donations. The official dedication took place on Sep
