When Elmwood High School opened in September 1958, the nearby Elmwood School was renamed River Elm School. The original configuration of the building, which accommodated students in grades 10 to 12, consisted of 14 classrooms, physics lab, chemistry lab, biology lab, home economics lab, typing room, music room, library and study room, and auditorium and gymnasium. It stood next to the 15-classroom David Thompson Junior High School, for students in grades 7 to 9, which had been built in 1955 at a cost of $321,000. The two buildings were connected to each other in 1964 and, during the 1969-1970 school years, the two schools were formally amalgamated.
