Huntsville Junior High School History

Huntsville Junior High School is the oldest junior high school in the Huntsville City Schools district. It was established during the 1954-55 school year, originally housed in what is now the Central Office of the district at the Annie Merts Center. The school was moved to its current location at 817 Adams Street in the 1979-80 school year. The school site, purchased by the Huntsville City Schools from the Huntsville Housing Authority in August, 1976, contains 17.6 acres. The building contains over 86,000 square feet of floor space, and was designed to serve 800 students.  The following elementary schools feed into Huntsville Junior High: Blossomwood, Jones Valley and Monte Sano. Additionally, upon completing 8th Grade, our students will matriculate to Huntsville High School
