Bishop honors the rich history and heritage of the Topeka Public Schools. The classrooms, meeting areas, and offices are named after older TPS schools that have been closed. Some of these happened in the late 1800s/early 1900s and some as recent as 1996. Most of these closed schools played integral parts in the historic Brown v Board desegregation lawsuit that changed the complexion of education throughout the United States. TPS is very proud to have been a deciding factor in the end of segregated schools in the United States. Four of these schools were "Black only" buildings - Buchanan, McKinley, Monroe, and Washington. Each room celebrates the building, teachers, and students who were a part of that school. 

On the accordion tabs below, you can click on the names of the rooms to find out the history, capacity, and technology the room offers.
