History

The original building, built in 1953 using military surplus paint, has been added onto throughout the years. The first addition in 1963 was built to house freshmen and sophomores. Later, a Field-house and Performing Arts center were added (1963 and 1979 respectively). A corridor connecting the cafeteria and the "B Building" was then added (this glass hallway is referred to as "the Breezeway"). A major addition, including a lecture hall was completed during the 2000-01 school year. Recently, a weight room was added during the 2009-2010 school year.
