The design of Presentation Secondary School Tralee was based innovatively on the distinctive cross of the Presentation Order with 3 central courtyards to allow in natural light. With the large grassland area surrounding the school as well as the "Green" adjacent to the school grounds, there is a welcome sense of space. The school is maintained to an excellent standard by support staff and many visitors are surprised to learn the building first opened its doors to students in 1984. There have been changes to the original design over time including the addition of new classrooms in recent years.
