In response to enrollment surges in the 1980s, Orchard Valley Middle School was built in 1989, along with its sister school Chestnut Ridge Middle School. Due to delays in construction, the district went on split sessions, with middle school held at the high school in the PM. Construction was completed and OVMS and CRMS opened in November of that school year. OVMS celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2014.
