The building located at 101 Park Place, Shippensburg currently wears the name the Shippensburg Area Middle School but that has not always been the case. This building has undergone both changes in name and physical structure. Construction of this particular building started in the 1953/1954 school year with an opening and dedication in the 1954/1955 school year. In 71/72 with the construction of a new high school at 201 Eberly Drive, this building became the Shippensburg Area Junior High School which housed grades 7 – 9. During a two-year transition, 1998 – 2000, there were addition changes to the grades that were instructed in this building. Grades 7 & 8 occupied the building in 1998/99 with a change to grades 6, 7, & 8 taking place in 1999/00. This is also the year in which the name of this building became the Shippensburg Area Middle School as is it currently called today.
There have also been many changes in administration since 1954 as shown below.
