History

Until the creation of the new Hollis/Brookline High School in 1997, the middle school served as the high school for both towns, with grades seven and eight occupying the current Hollis Upper Elementary School. On the middle school's property is the historic Farley Building, the original school in Hollis built in 1877, which was used for classes until 2006.

Facts
