The auditorium and theatrical stage are also located here. Off of the Main building is the Kate Walton Field House which contains the high school's gym and pool. On the other side is the Whiston (science) building, which is where many science classes and labs are located. Two cafeterias, a library and the KHS-TV studio are in the Salzmann building directly behind the Main building.
