History[edit]

The school district that is now East Lansing Public Schools was established in 1900, seven years before the city of East Lansing itself. All grade levels were taught in the original Central School, which was built in 1901. When that building burned down in 1916, classes were held in the old Peoples Church building until a second Central School could be built.[2]

The first High School building was completed in 1926 at 819 Abbott Road. When the current high school building opened in 1959, the former school became the East Lansing Junior High School. It closed for renovation in 1968, and reopened as the John A. Hannah Middle School. The building is now a community center.[3]

Awards[edit]
