We have outgrown the current facility.
Our current facility, located on the Republic Middle School campus (5 miles from RHS) was completed in the year 2000. At that time our student population was just over 3000 students. We’ve now grown to nearly 5000 students. Attendance at events exceeds seating availability which means high congestion and lack of facilities.
We want to provide competitive facilities in which our community can be proud.
Republic School District is currently the only COC school that does not have a facility of this nature to meet student and community needs on its high school campus. A new activity facility would allow Republic to be able to host MSHSAA events.
It addresses the fiscal responsibility and safety regarding Price Elementary Field.
Our 7th & 8th grade football teams play games on Price Elementary Field which is in dire need of structural and electrical renovations. A new activity facility at RHS would eliminate the need to renovate this field as games would be moved to the facility at RMS.
The all-weather turf provides limitless access for students.
Classrooms, student groups, JROTC, band and athletic teams have a need to use an activity facility daily. A new facility would provide limitless access to these groups of students as it will be artificial turf.
