School officials say it's high tech and well-suited for today's students.

"It has all the technology and security for today's world. Over 100 cameras. We have STEM rooms, we have computer rooms, we have all our related arts," said Superintendent Joseph Kovalchik.

The superintendent says the school will serve the students and community for many years to come.
