This School is Lovely: A Collage of Photos from Historic Campus

Salad creation

I hope you enjoy this photographic journey through one of America’s fine public schools.

This week I visited Trimble Tech High School in Fort Worth, Texas. Being out the field with our nation’s children and spending time with their educators is always informative and inspirational.

For context, from Wikipedia:

Green B. Trimble Technical High School started in 1882 as Fort Worth High School.

Trimble Tech sits about two miles (3 km) south of downtown Fort Worth, in a district called the Near Southside.

Trimble Tech is a vocational school. In addition to Texas-mandated curriculum requirements, Tech’s students take classes that prepare them for various technical and career fields, such as carpentry, auto repair and [the culinary arts].

Unlike other high schools in the Fort Worth Independent School District, Trimble Tech does not follow traditional feeder patterns. Eighth-grade students from schools in and out of the district must apply for acceptance to Trimble Tech.

Trimble Tech has previously attained “Recognized” status based on its students’ performance.

I have shared below a collage of photos below from our visit to the school. We were especially appreciative and impressed by the five course lunch catered by the culinary arts program. WOW.
