New high school is under construction in Tallassee, Ala.

Jan. 20, 2021
The $21 million facility will replace the city's existing high school, which was built in 1929.

The Tallassee (Ala.) City school district has begun construction of a new $21 million high school.

WSFA-TV reports that construction is taking place next door to the existing Tallassee High School building, a structure that was constructed in 1929 and is in need of replacement.

Tallassee City Schools Superintendent Brock Nolin says the funding is coming from three sources—a city sales tax passed several years ago, a city bond issue, and a state bond issue.

The new Tallassee High School will look very similar to the one it is replacing, something that was decided after listening to community input.

The new school will feature an auditorium that will have room for more than 650 people, a band and fine arts complex, and state-of-the-art science labs.

The superintendent says the new facility will provide many benefits, such as energy savings and improved student safety.

Maintaining the existing high school would cost millions of dollars more that constructing the new, more efficient facility.

Nolin says construction is ahead of schedule and, so far, within budget.

The goal is to have the high school built and move-in ready by fall 2022.
