Taconic (Vocational) High School is a high school in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, United States. Taconic was built in 1968 and opened in 1969. While offering general education courses, its primary focus was on vocational training and it offered such courses as auto mechanics, printing, drafting, electronics, carpentry and others. As of May 2016, J. H. Maxymillian Inc. officially broke ground on a $120.8 million plan to construct a new Taconic High School at the same location. J. H. Maxymillian Inc. won the bid for three early contracts on the construction of the school. The new high school was completed in time for the September 2018 school year and the old school was demolished upon completion of the new one. An expanded parking lot and soccer field were built where the old school stood in 2019. The new school covers 246,520 square feet to accommodate 920 students. Along with the opening of the new school, the school's logo was changed as the former logo was deemed insensitive to indigenous peoples, respectively.
