About Our School
O’Leary Junior High was named after Vera C. O’Leary, who was selected as principal in 1925
and who held that position for 36 years. After thirteen years in planning, the present building was
dedicated on March 11, 1979. The original three building complex included 121,000 square feet of
floor space. In August 2009, Vera C. O’Leary Junior High changed from a junior high to a
middle school configuration. On the 24th of August, O’Leary Middle School welcomed for the
first time in its history sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Ninth grade joined the high-school population.
