From the 1960s until 1989, Mansfield had two high schools, Senior High and Malabar, as well as three middle schools, Simpson, Sherman and Appleseed. Due to budgetary considerations, in fall 1989 Malabar was converted into a middle school, with all high school students being centralized at Senior High, with the exception of the ninth-graders, who were housed in the former Appleseed Middle School, dubbed the Cline Avenue Campus. Sherman became an elementary school, and several elementary schools were closed down, among them West Fifth and Stadium. Rae Melton Elementary, on the south side, had been closed and converted to administrative offices a decade earlier. From the 1990s until 2007, Mansfield had one high school, Senior High, two middle schools, Malabar and Simpson housing sixth through eighth graders, as well as nine elementary schools housing K through fifth graders. In fall 2003, the Cline Avenue Campus would close for good, relocating all ninth-graders to Senior High and in fall 2004, the new Mansfield Senior High School opens. Due to budgetary considerations once again, in fall 2007 John Simpson Middle School, as well as two elementary schools, Carpenter and Ranchwood were closed down for good leaving only one middle school, Malabar housing only seventh and eighth graders, and seven elementary schools, turning three of them, Brinkerhoff, Hedges and Springmill into intermediate schools housing fourth through sixth graders. In 2010, the district consolidated further. Seventh and eighth graders were moved from Malabar Middle School to their own wing in Mansfield Senior High School. All of the fourth through sixth grade students were moved to the Malabar school, now called Malabar Intermediate School. Hedges and Springmill Intermediate Schools were closed. Brinkerhoff Intermediate School was converted to the Spanish Immersion School. The central office personnel was moved from Mansfield Senior High School to the former Raemelton School.
