Margaret River Junior High School opened in 1955 with staff of 8 and 357 students including 265 in the Primary School section. It became High School to year 11 around 1983 and students traveled to Busselton for year 12. Later further upgrades led to full year 12 High School and in 2020 the grounds are fully built on.
