The school was built in 1954 as a lodging-house for the work-people of the local joinery factory. In 1992 the hotel was bought by the local administration and converted into the secondary school. At the same time the gym hall was built together with the one-storied coupler.In 1999 - 2000 the building has been retrofitted as a representative example for this type of school, in order to show the energy saving potentials.
