Emma B. Trask Middle School was named for prominent public education supporter Emma Borneman Trask.

The modern yellow brick school was built in 1976. It opened that fall as a seventh and eighth grade center with an enrollment of 744 pupils. James L. Johnson was the first principal.

On Feb. 5, 1978, a fire destroyed the administrative and media areas. For two weeks after the fire, students were bused to other schools while repairs were made. During the 1978-79 school year , the ninth grade was added and Emma B. Trask officially became a junior high school.
