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.
