History[edit]

P.S. 8

The first school building built on the High Street site was constructed in 1885, with a two-story brick addition constructed four years later. The current building structure was completed in 1926, and would be renovated in 1968 and again in 2006.[1] During the 2006 reconstruction, MLK was housed at former Buffalo Public School 8.
