TUBA CITY — Like the Jefferson’s in the TV sitcom, Tuba City High School students and staff are “moving on up to the east side” and loving it.
Teachers, students, administrators and counselors have completely moved into the new building at TC High School.
And it’s a sight to see from the 40-foot wooden counter front office to the individual counseling offices and principal’s offices, classrooms set up with new equipment including new computers and tech support to the new dean’s office and isolated study classrooms. Even the smell is new.
Spacious atmosphere makes walking to and from classrooms or offices a “breeze,” the all around two-story views are a nice break in between classes. The wide hallways, one which leads into the already existing library wing of TC High, makes student movement relaxed, conducive to conversation and ensures they can get to academic core classrooms on time, since they are all located within the same wing.
The formal groundbreaking was held on Jan. 26 and phone service as well as internet has since been hooked up for both staff and student use.
Handicapped access for TC High special needs students includes a private elevator to get to the second floor classrooms and wider doorways in bathroom areas.
The outside front entrance boasts special steel design work that incorporates several American Indian design motifs.
