The 1915 Salmagundi yearbook for Sanford High School. The yearbook was named after the Native American word meaning "a general mixture." Ethel Hickson was the editor-in-chief of the Salmagundi for the 1913-1914 school year, which cost fifteen cents. It has 52 pages, 12 of which make up the advertisement section. Topics of interest in the yearbook include student writings, such as "The Interesting Features of Florida." There is a local section and a social section. The societies section introduces two clubs to Sanford High: the Irving Literary Society and the Boys Debating Society. The yearbook also features student art and poetry. The athletics section features basketball and football. The alumni notes give information about graduates of Sanford High School. Some of the photographs include Sanford High School, Sanford Grammar School, the primary school, each class, and the boys basketball team.

Sanford High School was originally established at 301 West Seventh Street in Sanford, Florida, in 1902. The building was designed by W. G. Talley in the Romanesque revival style. Due to an increasing student population, a new school building was constructed on Sanford Avenue in 1911. The original building on Seventh Street served as Westside Grammar Elementary School, which was later renamed Sanford Grammar School. In 1984, the building was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places and converted into the Student Museum. The building reopened as the University of Central Florida's Public History Center in 2012. In 1927, a high school campus was designed by Elton J. Moughton in the Mediterranean revival style and constructed at 1700 French Avenue. The school reopened on January 10 and was renamed Seminole High School. In 1960, the high school moved to a new campus at 2701 Ridgewood Avenue and the former building on French Avenue was converted to Sanford Junior High School, which was later renamed Sanford Middle School. The old building was demolished in the summer of 1991 and replaced by a $5.77 million school complex. As of 2013, Seminole High School offers various Advanced Placement courses, the Academy for Health Careers, and the International Baccalaureate Programme for students.
