The school was opened in 1956 and has since undergone several large expansions. In the 1960s, a large section that today houses the main office, cafetorium, front entrance, courtyard, as well as several classrooms, was added. Later, in the early 2000s, a wing was added to the east side of the building. Many of these classrooms are now devoted to mathematics and science courses. The school also hosts a football field that is shared with surrounding schools.
