History Of Jeremiah Rhodes


 Rhodes Middle School opened in 1954 at a time when Tampico Street was still an unpaved road. After much hard work and determination, Rhodes became a Technology Magnet School in 1999 and a Technology Charter School in 2010. Now known as Rhodes Technology and Media Internal Charter, students use technology each day in their lessons and classrooms. Rhodes is a great place to be and we look forward to working with you and your child.

Jeremiah Rhodes was THE originator of the junior high school system in Texas. He moved to Texas in 1920 and served as superintendent of the San Antonio schools from 1920 to 1925. Rhodes pushed successfully for a bond issue in 1922 because San Antonio schools were extremely crowded. In 1933 he became the head of the junior high schools division of the Texas State Department of Education. We are proud to have our campus named after Jeremiah Rhodes.
