Notes
In 1855, a lot was bought for a school and in 1857 Berlin Central School was opened. Two main floor rooms served as both a grammar school and library. In 1876 four classrooms were added to the original structure. Jeremiah Suddaby became principal in 1877, and in the same year Berlin Central became a Model School, offering training to future teachers. The first Kindergarten in Canada opened at the school in 1882. Upon Jeremiah Suddaby's death in 1910, the school board renamed the school in his honour. Suddaby School expanded once again in 1922 and still exists.
