SHORELINE, Wash. – Students and teachers at Shorewood High School are walking into a brand new building this year.
"I’m very excited. It’s beginning a new school year but it’s pretty incredible to open a 220,000-square foot high school facility all at once. It’s a rare opportunity,” principal Bill Dunbar said.
Students now have state-of-the-art and high-tech classrooms with wireless capabilities to go along with the iPads they receive from the school district.
Voters passed the bond measure in 2010 to rebuild Shorewood, which costs $95 million. The old building was nearly 40 years old and stretched across five blocks made up of an old elementary and junior high school.
"I’ve been in Shorewood for 17 years. This is a big change for me. Just being able to look out so many windows and space to actually do science in a facility that's built for the kids,” teacher Alisan Tucker-Giesy said.
