The school was completed during the 1958–1959 school year to serve the newly formed Kitimat, British Columbia. The building was expanded and improved in the 1970s and 1980s to compensate for an increase in population. The building now has a capacity of approximately 1500 students. Due to population decline in Kitimat, however, there is just a fraction of that today. It was originally a High School for students in grades 8 - 12, but recently as the Kitimat's population dropped, several elementary schools were closed and Mount Elizabeth Secondary School became Mount Elizabeth Middle-Secondary School for students in grades 7 - 12.
