Actively preparing today’s learners for tomorrow’s challenges by promoting academic excellence, providing positive social and cultural experiences, and fostering an attitude of consideration and respect.
The very first school in Huntsville was established in the home of Captain George Hunt on John Street. A two-story frame school was built in May 1887 – where the current school library sits – and the total cost was $1600. This school was eventually closed and used as Huntsville’s first museum. In 1904, a large three-story structure was built at the corner of Caroline and Centre Street and served as the elementary and secondary school. A separate high school was built in 1950 on Brunel Road. The present Huntsville Public School was constructed in 1967 where the original school was first established.
