Formerly located at 451 North Hill Street on the Fort Moore Hill area, the two-story Central Junior High School building was built in 1936 by the City of Los Angeles Board of Education and designed by architect A. C. Zimmerman in the Mediterranean Revival Style. Originally built as a middle school, in later years, it functioned and was known as the Los Angeles City Board of Education Administrative Offices.; The Central Los Angeles New High School #9 was built on the historic Fort Moore Hill area which is bordered by Grand Avenue and Hill Street on the north and south ends, and Cesar Chavez Avenue and the Santa Ana Freeway on the east and west. The site included a number of structures which were demolished to make room for the new school, including Vernon Avenue School, the Los Angeles Pacific Company, Tunnel Number 2, and Central Junior High School (also later known as the Los Angeles City Board of Education Administrative Offices). The school opened on September 2009 and is now known as the Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts.
