History

Burley Middle School was originally built in 1950 as a combination of three schools for African-Americans: Jefferson High School, Esmont High School, and Albemarle Training School. The school opened in 1951 and was named for a prominent African-American community leader, Jackson P. Burley. In 1967 the school officially desegregated and became known as the Jack Jouett Junior Annex, and was used to relieve the overpopulated Jack Jouett Junior High. In 1973 the school was renamed Jackson P. Burley, housing grades six and seven and in 1974 it became an Albemarle County middle school with grades six through eight.[2]
