Students and teachers attended their first classes in a newly completed classroom complex at Righetti High School in Orcutt Monday.
The complex is comprised of 38 classrooms and cost $24 million to build.
More teachers will move into the classrooms over the coming weeks.
School officials say the new classrooms will allow for larger class capacity, replace portable classrooms and advance new technology.
The building will primarily be home to English, math and health classes.
“What’s been really fun this morning is to see the kids,” said Karen Rotondi, Righetti High School Principal. “The kids are just kind of in awe and they’re super excited about it. We’ve had other kids walking through the building. I think they are all excited eventually because our kids all take English and math. Every student is gonna be able to make their way through and have a classroom in this new building.”
