Interesting Fact: Independence Middle is one of three schools with identical floor plans which were completed in 1974.

Independence Middle opened its doors to students in September 1974 as a junior high, serving students in grades 6-8. This was the year that Virginia Beach City Public Schools achieved the long-sought-after goal of removing eighth and ninth grade students from the high schools.

Independence is a fully accredited middle school.
