A Brief History of the Building
The original high school, or A building was built in 1928.  In 1930, building B, which fronts on Cochran Road, was constructed, and was called “one of the most modern educational plants in the state.”  From there, Buildings D and E – the gym, pool and auditorium wings – were added in 1955 as the community desired increased physical education and fine arts components of the curriculum.  In 1972 the Fine Arts Theater in Building F was added, again to increase the strength of the fine arts curriculum.  Building C was also completed in 1972.  At that time the C wing housed what were then state-of-the art science labs, a planetarium, a modern kitchen and three cafeterias located on four separate floors, group lecture space, a larger library, the Center Court, and the turf field.
