In 1937 the school added the north building (which is still there today). However, the south wing, the original building, was destroyed by fire in 1962 and a new junior high building was built in its location. In 2001, the new middle school building was built just north of the high school and the high school took over the space previously occupied by the middle school. The gymnasium was added in 1956. The library addition along with a separate addition was built in the 1971. In 2006, a renovation project started on the entire high school. Phase 1, which included renovating the north building, started in 2006 and completed in 2009.
