History[edit]

In 1927, Titusville High School was founded at the current location, the first building devoted solely to high school classes in the city. The Spanish-style structure featured terrazzo floors, brick halls, an auditorium, cafeteria, a large second-floor library, and one-story wings housing industrial arts and home economics departments. Over the entrance was a bell tower, which was reproduced in smaller form as a monument when the building was demolished in 1972. None of the original structure remains.

The school was partially integrated in 1966, and fully integrated in 1967 with African-American students coming from the previously all-black school, the Andrew J. Gibson High School.[1]

Campus[edit]

The campus contains several buildings: the two story Dorothy S. Wise Instructional Building; the Science, Art, and Health Occupations Building; Fine and Performing Arts Buildings; Cafeteria, Gym, Media Center and Administrative offices.

A new football stadium was completed in mid 2007. Two buildings were constructed in 2008: An Administrative/Science/Freshman Center and a Performing Arts building.
