North Junior High was built on the Lemps Triangle in 1925. Lemps Triangle was bought for $22,500. The Triangle was originally an old baseball field that the local neighbor kids would use during the summer. North was finished in 1937 for approximately $308,351, and during the first year it opened the school had a little over 1300 kids attending. North decided to build a whole new gym for its self in the summer of 2008. North Junior High school was the first designated junior high in Boise. Construction used local Boise sandstone in combination with over a million bricks manufactured around the region. The recent renovation of the North Junior High school Gym by CTA Architects Engineers - the design team - was awarded an Orchid Award by Presevation Idaho in 2010 for their Contribution to Historic Preservation.
