Sheriff Junior High School was established in 1959 to receive a large number of high school students from different schools in Sydney, Nova Scotia. The new building on Sheriff Avenue opened on January 3. Of the twelve classes which comprised the school, one was from Holy Angels Convent, three from Sacred Heart School and eight from Saint Joseph School. There were also students who were from Saint Anthony Daniel School. The school personnel was made up of a director, a lay teacher and four teaching sisters.
