History[edit]

Princeton Community High School was opened in the early 1970s to replace old Princeton High School, which became crowded due to the public school consolidations of the previous few decades.

A new High School opened in August 2012. Princeton Community Middle School is now located in the former Princeton Community High School resulting in a centralized Middle-High School Campus.
