JTM Vision

“How does a school begin? A need brings ideas, ideas transform into diagrams, diagrams into a building. John Trotwood Moore Junior High School became individual and unique at the idea stage. It is the proof of a successful experiment. And now the idea has been conceived.”- 1970 Matador Yearbook
