The Tyler community got its first look at the newly finished, state-of-the-art academic and administrative wing of John Tyler High School during an Open House event held Tuesday, Jan. 28. The come-and-go event gave guests the opportunity to view the modern, collegiate-inspired space that holds academic classrooms, learning environments, science labs, collaboration spaces, administrative offices and more.
The recently completed academic and administrative wing of the campus marks the second stage of completion for the BOND 2017 project. Phase I saw the completion of a practice gymnasium. Now that students and staff have moved into the academic and administrative wing (Phase II), work will focus on demolition, renovations and additions to the existing campus structures, including the completion of a state of the art Fine Arts Center that will seat approximately 1,000 guests.
Prior to the Open House, the Tyler ISD Foundation hosted its John Tyler Brick Unveiling Ceremony those who participated in the “Leave Your Legacy” Brick Campaign. The bricks are featured outside of the main campus entrance.
