BRYANT, AR -- The Hornets had grown out of their nest.
"It's obviously our test scores and our school district itself," said Randy Rutherford, superintendent of the Bryant School District.
But the new nest is spacious and state of the art! Bryant school leaders say the 129,000 square foot high school has everything to educate your child.
"They've got all the modern technology inside this building. There are no excuses for them not to be successful," Rutherford said.
Rutherford gave FOX16 a tour of the school, including the two-story media center. In my day, we called it the library. It's situated in the middle of the school for a reason.
"We hope it becomes the hub as far as the kids are concerned and obviously you want kids in the media center," Rutherford said.
Students and teachers will be walking into spacious classrooms featuring the latest in technology to make sure those lessons stick.
"We're going to challenge kids, and obviously in order to make it more rigorous it has to be relevant. You have to show them the real world. How does it apply?" Rutherford said.
The district also has a brand new elementary school, and two other elementary schools have added classrooms and amenities. Rutherford said the schools will be ready on August 20 -- the first day of class.
