The original building was built in 1977 and had its first addition in 1983. This addition doubled the size of the original gymnasium, added a media center, and classrooms. The building underwent substantial remodeling in 2004, with changes taking place to the office suite, classrooms, and converting the original gymnasium to a cafeteria. A new classroom wing and gymnasium were also added at this time. The building occupies a 13.4-acre site and has 25 classrooms with a total capacity of 550 students.
