School Within a School. Library Bell Educational Complex.
Jones, Tyson L.
Two junior high schools for enrollments of 800-900 students each (Grades 7-12), are being constructed concurrently with an instructional materials center, a multipurpose building, and a vocational school on a 150-acre site in Johnson City, Tennessee. Each school is to have its own principal, assistant principal, counselors, secretaries, and aides. English, mathematics, science-health, and social studies will be taught in each school. Other subjects such as Latin, modern languages, art, reading, and a strong offering of prevocational and occupational courses will be taught in the central complex area containing a little theater, the instructional materials center, the cafeteria, and the physical education facilities. Such a school-within-a-school complex is designed to provide all the economies of a large school and at the same time maintain the closeness and personal touch of a smaller school. (Author)
