Mishawaka's first public high school was opened in 1874 with an enrollment of sixty students. Accredited in 1876, the school graduated its first class in June, 1878. The original building was a three-story red brick structure at First and Hill streets. In 1911 a new building was erected one block further south on Hill and facing what is now Lincoln Way West. This present Mishawaka High School was dedicated in the fall of 1924.
