After being abandoned for quite some time, the building was purchased by the school district in and opened as a high school in Tacoma—and the rest was history. Some places always feel like home. Most of our full time staff attended stadiumhighschool, nearly our entire team lives in tacomawa. We are proud to be locally owned and operated with a culture of giving back to our community
