Here in Maine at around the same time (I graduated from high school in 1991), most school districts including Millinocket's had K-5 elementary schools, a middle school for grades 6-8, and high school was 9-12. There were a few places around the state in the '80s, one of which I remember visiting as a member of the George W. Stearns High School stage band, that had K-6 elementary schools, plus a 7-8/9-12 junior/senior high school in a single building.

To save facilities cost in the face of cratering enrollment, Millinocket has gone to that model in recent years (having closed two of its elementary schools and added grade 6 to the remaining one), although they still call the 7-8 school "Millinocket Middle School", even though the whole thing is properly Stearns Jr.-Sr. High now.
