In 1963 the voters agreed to consolidate the schools in the Town of Newburgh and New Windsor with those in the city of Newburgh into one school district. This vote created the Enlarged Newburgh City School District. In 1970 two new schools were opened due to increased population in the Towns of Newburgh and New Windsor. One school, built in the Town of Newburgh, was called Meadow Hill School; the other, called Temple Hill School was built in New Windsor. In the 1980s additions to Vails Gate, Fostertown, Gadnertown, and Gidney Avenue Schools were built. The two junior high schools were expanded. In the mid-90s a third junior high school, called Heritage Junior High, was built from the former Epiphany Seminary building in New Windsor.
