Tacoma's Stadium High School

High school students living in Tacoma Washington have an awesome high school. Dubbed "Castle on the hill" Tacoma High school definitely looks like it is set in a English country side in the 1600s rather than a modern day high school. The school was featured in the movie 10 Things I Hate about You. I didn't really care for the movie, it was the school that caught my eye. I was ecstatic to found out it was an actual building and not a set.

The building was meant to be a luxury hotel and construction began in 1891 but the depression and a fire hampered the construction and the dreams of it becoming of Washington's most beautiful hotel. It was converted into a high school in 1906.
