Arvada Junior High School
|Address:||5751 Balsam St., Arvada, 80002|
This school was contracted to be built by the R-1 School District in 1952 as a high school. It was completed ahead of schedule and was used by the overflow students from Lawrence Elementary School in 1954-1955. In the Fall of 1955, Arvada High School at 7225 Ralston Road became Arvada Junior High School, and the new Arvada High School on Balsam Street enrolled students until 1970. When another new Arvada Arvada High School at 7951 W. 65th Avenue opened its doors in 1970, the Arvada High School on Balsam became Arvada Junior High School, and the Arvada Junior High School at 7225 Ralston Road became East Arvada Junior High School. The latter school was routed for Cornerstone Mall in 1986, but the Arvada Junior High School at 5751 Balsam Street was still operating in 1991.
