History

Harrisonburg High School was founded in 1879, and was initially located on South Main Street. In 1928, it was moved to South High Street; in 1967, the high school was moved to Grace Street. During this time it housed students from grades seven upward, but when Thomas Harrison Middle School was built in 1989, grades seven and eight were shifted from the high school department, and the high school expanded to include both the South High Street and Grace Street complexes. The entire complex renovated in 1994, on its hundredth anniversary, but was subsequently leased to James Madison University, after the construction and opening of a new building on Garbers Church Road on August 24, 2005.
