The school took its name from General Edward Cornwallis, who founded the city, at the time of Father Le Loutre's War. The foundation stone was laid by the Lord Cornwallis of the time on July 1, 1948, which was the bicentennial of the city's foundation. The school's mascot is the chough, a small crow found in Cornwall, England.
On June 22, 2011 the Halifax Regional School Board voted to change the name of the school after Kirk Arsenault, the Mi'kmaq representative on the board, put forward a motion for the change. The name has been officially changed from Cornwallis Junior High School to Halifax Central Junior High.
