Hoosac Valley High School opened in the year 1970, with the first class graduating in 1971. HVHS replaced Adams Memorial High School, the current location of the Adams Memorial Middle School. For a brief time, Adams Memorial Middle School closed due to the building being unsafe and its students (grades 7 & 8) moved to Hoosac Valley High School. A major renovation of the Hoosac Valley High School campus forced the student population (grades 7-12) to take classes at the Adams Memorial Middle School campus. Work on the Hoosac Valley High School campus began in 2010 and was completed in time to readmit students (now grades 6-12) in the fall of 2012.
