Gahanna Middle School East was completed in 1975 when the Gahanna Schools changed to a middle school concept.  It was originally built as an "open classroom" building with large open spaces and a limited number of walls separating the classes.

Currently, moveable walls that allow for flexibility in instruction and variation in the grouping of students separate many of the classrooms.  In 2000, the building underwent a major renovation with expanded music areas, additional classrooms, office space, and a new gymnasium.
