One of the first modern schools in Iran, the American Memorial School was established in Tabriz in 1881 by the American Presbyterian Mission. In the spring of 1909, during the Iranian Constitutional revolution, one of the young American teachers of the school, Howard Baskerville, was killed in a battle against the monarchists.
 After World War II, the school was renamed Parvin High School by Iran’s Ministry of Education.
