About the School

Tabernacle's History

The original Tabernacle School was constructed in 1936 on 8.62 acres for $27,318.13. The original school included six classrooms and an auditorium. The school received its name from Tabernacle Township which was named for a Methodist Church. There were two buses for the school and seven grades in six rooms.

A cafeteria was built on the hill in 1944. The parents of the students provided food to cook. In 1955, a building was constructed to house five additional classrooms and the cafeteria. In 1980 a building was constructed to serve as gymnasium and auditorium. The original auditorium was converted to a media center with a connecting administrative area , teachers' workroom, and resource rooms. Before relocating to the new school in 1997, there were nine mobile units serving as additional classrooms.
On March 14th, 1997, the faculty, staff, and students moved into a new 56,000 square foot facility. For 7.1 million dollars, we are operating under a state-of-the-art structure.
