Built in 1955 as a two- story, eight-room elementary school to serve the growing population in the Lake Trail area. In 1957 the school was renamed Lake Trail Junior Secondary School to serve an aging school population in the area. A gym and additional classroom space were added in 1999. Seismic upgrades, a significant redesign, and a large addition were approved and started in the summer of 2019.
The school, now known as Lake Trail Community School, continues to operate as a middle school with a vibrant community.
