K-5 is on one side of the building 6 to 12th grade on the other they share a central cafeteria and a split library.

"There are 1,100 students in our entire system so the state agreed to fund the project if we agreed to put all the students under the same roof," said Robbie Phillips, Superintendent.

It took roughly $20 million to build the new school, $9 million came from a bond citizens voted to approve.
