OXFORD – Oxford High School officials will host a community open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 18 to thank residents for making the new high school campus a reality.

The event will begin with a dedication ceremony in the gymnasium followed by guided tours.

The new 220,000-square-foot Oxford High School opened Jan. 7 to more than 1,000 students. Eley Guild Hardy designed the building, and Yates Construction and Johnson Controls collaborated. The new campus includes larger classrooms and hallways, a collaborative learning environment, a robust wireless network, 70-inch televisions in classrooms and 60-inch monitors in school hallways, two-story classroom wings, a cafeteria salad bar, outdoor amphitheater and a courtyard.
