The school was built in 1953, and several additions were constructed in 1957 and 1967. In 2002, the school district passed a bond proposition in the sum of $24 million for the purpose of constructing a new gymnasium, a new library media center, 18 additional classrooms, expanded technology education classrooms, additional performing arts facilities, and an extension to the cafeteria. All of this was completed as of September 2004.

These efforts include resource rooms, inclusion classes, laboratory classes for extra help, The Freshman Learning Community, the STEPS alternative education program and Academic Intervention Services.
