O’Neal’s indoor pool was built as part of the private school's first brick and mortar building in 1975, just four years after O’Neal was founded in 1971. From that time, swimming has always been a part of O’Neal’s physical education curriculum with swimming classes starting in kindergarten. O’Neal’s varsity swim team has won many consecutive state and conference championships over the years, with many Falcons (past and present) still holding state records.
The pool of more than 40 years was recently renovated and named the Taws Aquatics Center. O’Neal is now ready to expand its offerings to meet the needs of students at all levels - preschool, elementary school, middle school and high school.The O'Neal Pelagics
