Tates Creek High School, 1976

Tates Creek High School, near Lexington’s Gainesway neighborhood, May 10, 1976. The school opened in September 1965 with a capacity of 1,300 students. The building was purposely planned without physical adornment. This was to add to its versatility. Walls were simply concrete block that could be torn out in one night if the need for a larger room arose. In 1976, the senior class was 483 students. The 2017 class was 456. In 1993, the school underwent renovations to significantly increase its size. Photo by John C. Wyatt | Staff
