The town was incorporated in 1925, and during the 1930s a two-story school building was constructed for grades 1-12. The bottom level held the lower grades, while the high school classes were held on the upper level.The campus now known as Jupiter High School was first built west of Military Trail in 1967 for students of the town of Jupiter to attend. Initially the complex housed grades 7-12, with the high school located on the South Campus of the school. As the town's population grew, a middle school—now Jupiter Middle School—was constructed a few miles away, and the high school encompassed both the North and South Campuses.In June 2001, groundbreaking for a new high school took place. It opened in 2003, costing over $56 million and on August 13, 2003 all students were on one campus for the first time in 20 years. The new high school is on the 12 acres (49,000 m2) that was once home to the high school stadium, ball fields, tennis courts and practice fields.
