Site Description

The high school consisted of a construction site, grassy habitat, forest habitat, and parking lot. In addition to the main building, classroom trailers are lined along the student parking lot. The football field lies adjacent to the trailers whereas the baseball field is behind the football field and the tennis courts are to the right of the football field. On the left side of the building there are two courtyards. The surrounding area of the high school consists of several apartment complexes as well as established residential areas. The site is found in a suburban area of Athens. Since the high school is in an established area, the chances of finding wildlife are slim.
