On, Monday August 10th 2015  Neosho opened a new addition to it’s high schools that solves multiple needs by blending, safety, aesthetics and space needs into a 14,000 sf FEMA tornado safe room. This space features 18 new classrooms with FEMA rated windows that are able take impacts up too 200 mph, while providing natural light into the classrooms. Safety being the key this structure will withstand a tornado with winds up to 250 mph and protect up to 2366 occupants!

A side benefit of the addition is a new entrance and two story facade giving the building a modern look, one that the community and students can be proud of.
