New high school unveiled in Rhea County

Posted: Updated:
DAYTON, TN (WRCB) -

Over crowded classrooms in Rhea County have come to an end. 

This weekend community members were given a sneak peak of the new $30 million facility. The ribbon cutting ceremony started at 10 a.m. followed by the "National Anthem" played by the student marching band.

An anxious crowd of teachers, parents and city leaders gathered by the main doors before tours.

The state of the art high school is located in Dayton, TN and set to educate 2400 students this school year.

"This is a thrill. I've taught in this county for 20 years.  I am proud to be a teacher to serve in this facility," says English teacher Valerie Cannon.

Everything inside is designed to help prepare today's students for the 21st century. The classrooms are equipped with Promethean Smart Boards and iPads.  Students will also have access to a computer learning lab and two high tech workout gyms.

Classes are scheduled to begin on Monday, August 12 for high school and middle school students.
