History[edit]

In 1915, Crescent Heights High School was called Crescent Heights Collegiate Institute, and was located in what is now Balmoral School. By 1919, enrollment at Crescent Heights High School was 980 students. The current building was erected in 1928 for a cost of $275,000.[1] It was extensively renovated in 1985-86, with a second full-size gymnasium added, and the original gymnasium converted into a student center. The basement lunch room was converted into a theater and a Building shop was later turned into a Dance room.

The school is a member of the Action for Bright TUTTA Society.[2]
