THe NEOSHO JUNIOR HIGH
New in 2017, the Neosho Junior High School, a 142,000 square foot, two story state of the art school built by Branco, is the secondary venue for the tournament. The NJHS is the newest school in the Neosho School District, and was built with technology and state-of-the-art teaching techniques in mind. The teaching spaces are divided into 8 different “neighborhoods” which are highly flexible, collaborative learning environments. Each neighborhood houses 5 classrooms, an open learning space, restrooms, teacher office space, and support areas. The gymnasium, with its newly installed premium sound system and extra capacity, makes this a perfect venue for the Neosho Holiday Classic.
THE NEOSHO HIGH SCHOOL
The Neosho High School Gymnasium is the premiere venue for the Neosho Holiday Classic. The vintage gym brings an “old-school” feel to the tournament, while providing plenty of seating for the fans. The pictured façade, which was completed by Branco in 2007, serves as the entrance to both the gym and the commons area, while the gym itself was completed in 1955. During the summer of 2011, Branco installed new windows for both the gym and the entire high school facility. Also in 2011, Branco completed a contract for the installation of a new HVAC system in the gym. In 2015, Branco completed a new FEMA Shelter on the west side of the High School, which also provides 18 classrooms.
