Accreditation and Current Status

Due to the school being placed on warning status, the town voted to build a new high school next to the old one. The school cost $65 million and is opened in August 2012. The gymnasium will seat 1,225 fans and features one main basketball court and three intermediate courts that can be separated for tournament or recreational league use. There is a chance the gym could be used for future TMHS graduations.The auditorium/theater features seating for 690 and the stage has a spacious backstage area for work on theatrical productions.Some of the more unique characteristics of the complex include "airport style" restrooms for students, shared "prep" areas behind science and art classrooms, a TV studio and two oversized lecture halls that can accommodate three or four classes meeting together. The entire complex features copious amounts of glass for maximum natural lighting. This ties in with numerous "green" features that add to the energy efficiency of the school and guarantee an additional two percent reimbursement from the state. Freshman Orientation was on August 27, 2012, and the first official day of school in the new building was on August 28, 2012. As of September 2012, the new high school is complete and currently in use for the 2012-2013 school year. Demolition for the old high school began in mid-August 2012 and will be finished in December 2012.
