Our New School


The new P.D. Jackson-Olin High School opened her doors for the arrival of new students in August 2006. The 275,000-square-foot building has 61 classrooms, five science labs and three computer labs to accommodate 1,800 students. The facility, constructed with concrete mortar units and a brick veneer, also has a 750-seat auditorium with a stage; a 450-seat cafeteria with a full service kitchen; and full internet capabilities. An automatic fire sprinkler system, closed-circuit television and security systems area has also been installed. A canopy covers the bus drop-off area to shield students in inclement weather.

 

The Fine Arts department has classrooms for choral, drama and band. The Career Technology wing houses health sciences, cosmetology, automotive repair shops, HVAC and refrigeration shop, business labs, plant biosystems with a 1,800-square-foot greenhouse and a fully commercial culinary arts program. The ROTC program offers an indoor shooting range.

 

The new campus offers the latest in high technology equipment; laboratories; and educational centers. There is a state-of-the-art sports facility. Some of its amenities include a football field; 4,500-seat stadium; six-lane running track; and two gymnasiums. An area in the Consumer Sciences department hosts a young mother's program. A statue of Dr. P.D. Jackson has been erected in the school's front courtyard. The 24,000-square-foot common courtyard, ideal for student gathering, is located between the Media Center and the cafeteria.
