High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Garland High School, which was founded in 1903, is the oldest of the district's high schools, having celebrated its 100-year anniversary in the 2001-2002 school year, although some evidence suggests that the school started in the late 1800s. The school celebrates its 100th anniversary at the current location in the 2006-2007 school year. The school is a member of the International Baccalaureate program and AP, Advanced Placements program, and is known for its football team, the Garland Owls. Garland High School is also the Arts Magnet for the District with its Performing Arts Endorsement Program, and has a Acappella Choir, String Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, and Band. The school mascot is Ollie the Owl, and a costumed owl named Ollie makes appearances at pep rallies and football games.
Garland High School is the product of varying architectural styles. The original building on the site was built as a public works project under the WPA, Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression. This building is built in the Spanish mission style and features terra cotta roofs and the school's signature beige brick. This theme was emulated in later additions and renovations to the school. While the school is the oldest in the school district, each of the building additions features its own distinct character. However, the school is under a fairly constant state of repair. The school's heating and air conditioning system is notorious for its byzantine structure and endless miles of piping that are cooled in order to provide air conditioning. A recent slate of renovations to the school is intended to modernize this system.
