Arsenal Technical High School

Arsenal Technical High School is a public high school in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States which is run by the Indianapolis Public Schools school system. Established in 1912, the school consists of a 76-acre (31 ha), multiple building campus east of downtown Indianapolis and is the only such type school in Indiana. The school was originally a U.S. Civil War Arsenal, which was closed after the Spanish-American War.

Most of the original buildings from the Arsenal still remain. These include the actual Arsenal building, the officer's West Residence, the soldier's Barracks, the entrance Guardhouse, the Barn, and the powder Magazine. Buildings built for the school include Stuart, Treadwell, Morgan, and Lone Halls, which are the four buildings with general purpose classrooms. However, Lone and Morgan halls contain workshop-style rooms as well. Moon Hall houses the music department and cafeteria. The east and west gyms are used for physical education and sports, the auditorium is for school assemblies, and the media center houses the library and bookstore. Due to the Arsenal and the many school buildings that had existed on the campus for such a long time, Tech was placed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.

Arsenal Tech has four magnets, and for non-magnet students there is a "small school" for each grade level. The magnets are: The Math/Science Academy, New Tech High, STAR Academy and Career Technology Magnet.

As part of the 2012 Super Bowl, which was hosted by the city, a community center was placed on campus and a new football field soon will be. This is part of the legacy project put on every year by the Super Bowl host city, with this year's overall project to renew and restore the city's east side. The NFC team's practice field was originally set to be placed on Tech's campus but it is now at the University of Indianapolis after being deemed impractical for the school.

    A monarch, when good, is entitled to the consideration which we accord to a pirate who keeps Sunday School between crimes; when bad, he is entitled to none at all.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The secret of genius is to suffer no fiction to exist for us; to realize all that we know; in the high refinement of modern life, in arts, in sciences, in books, in men, to exact good faith, reality, and a purpose; and first, last, midst, and without end, to honor every truth by use.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Obscenity is a moral concept in the verbal arsenal of the Establishment, which abuses the term by applying it, not to expressions of its own morality, but to those of another.
    Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)

    In effect, to follow, not to force the public inclination; to give a direction, a form, a technical dress, and a specific sanction, to the general sense of the community, is the true end of legislature.
