Built by the Kraft Construction Company in early 1970, and named for aviation pioneer Frederick J. Stevenson, the Stevenson Junior High School was opened officially on 29 October 1970. A second ceremony on 18 November 1970 involved members of the Stevenson family and the placing of a copper box containing mementos contributed by students in a wall behind the cornerstone.
