Texhoma’s Showplace: A New, Monolithic Dome School Old and new — In 1910 Texhoma built its first brick building, and in 2000 it built its first Monolithic Dome school facility. Texhoma School District — It serves approximately 500 students, in prekindergarten through grade 12, and now has a new Monolithic Dome facility for students in grades 5 through 12. Two Monolithic Domes — Larger dome has a diameter of 108’ and the smaller has a diameter of 66’. The two domes, connected with conventional construction, provide 18,000 square feet of indoor space. Concrete Courtyard — Plans for the outdoor area included a 19,000-square-foot concrete courtyard. Library — Good lighting and roominess make this an ideal spot for studying and reading. Library lighting includes 7 pewter chandeliers. Colorful hallways — Painted with Texhoma’s school colors, these lockers line the hallways that lead directly into classrooms along the dome’s perimeter. Colorful cafeteria — Overhead florescent lighting and large windows give the cafeteria a light, airy atmosphere. Student artwork adorns the walls. Who’s the joker? — Note the super-size, plastic beetle hanging over the food prepared in this modern, well-equipped kitchen! Architect’s rendering — Rick Crandall of Crandall Design in Mesa, AZ designed Texhoma’s Monolithic Dome facility. Floor plan — Larger dome encompasses 7 classrooms arranged around a central office area and a large upstairs library. Smaller dome houses a cafeteria and kitchen. Unique location and history — “We’re so big it takes 2 states to hold us!” claims Texhoma, a town of just 1300, that straddles the state line between Texas and Oklahoma.
