Our School

Our History


In the beginning Edmond was just a lonely stop in Indian Territory with no trees, streets or buildings. This little stop would become one of the largest, fastest-growing cities in Oklahoma Territory.

The school was originally named Edmond High School because it was the only secondary school within the city limits. In 1922, Edmond High School graduated their first class of just 24 students. Since then, the size, location and name would change as the community grew.  Edmond High School was located on North Boulevard; this building is now Boulevard Academy.

As Edmond grew, the school changed location several times, moving to its current location on 15th Street in the mid-1960s. The current building was built in 1966 as a seventh grade only school. It opened to its first class of seventh graders the second semester of the 66–67 school year. At that point, Edmond High School was located at the corner of Ninth Street and Rankin. It housed all sophomores, juniors and seniors in Edmond. That building is now called Central Middle School and houses sixth, seventh and eighth graders from several elementary schools on the east side of Edmond.

Notice how the High School is in the shape of an “E”. (see left) This was the orginal shape of the school until the student body grew so large that the school was forced to add new rooms, thus distorting the “E” Shape.

Because of its rapidly increasing size, in 1994 the school split into three, now rival schools, including Edmond North High School and Edmond Santa Fe High School.

Edmond Highschool Becomes Edmond Memorial

In 1975 Edmond High School’s name was changed to Edmond Memorial High School. “Memorial” was added as a tribute to six EHS graduates who died serving their country in the Vietnam War.
