Truman School opened in the fall of 1978. It had been built to meet the needs of special education students. Classrooms had been built to accommodate the varied needs of children with a variety of disabilities.
In 1992 Federal and state regulations forced the closing of Truman School for handicapped students. It was mandated these students should be served in non-segregated settings. The school year of 1992-93 was used to make the transition for special needs students.
In the fall of 1993 Truman School opened as a regular education school serving K-6 students. The following year the sixth grade was moved to the middle school.
