• The original Biloxi Junior High School was built in 1942 on Howard Avenue, across from the present-day Biloxi Community Center. The current junior high school was once “new” Biloxi High School, built in 1961 at a cost of $1.6 million.


    In 2002, when the new high school opened north of the Bay of Biloxi, the junior high, serving Grades 8 and 9, moved into the former high school on Father Ryan Avenue.


    With the 2009 school year, the ninth-grade class moved to Biloxi High School, and Biloxi Junior High School began serving sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students.
