The school was established in 1867[1] during a copper boom in the Upper Peninsula. The school itself is a product of the powerful Calumet and Hecla Mining Company that once owned and operated much of Calumet. In the late 19th and early 20th century Calumet became a large, prosperous town. The population drastically went down once the mines began to close down during the 1940s and 1950s. However, enrollment has recently stabilized at 400.
