New Natick High Hosts Students For the First Time
Students and teachers had their first day of class in the new Natick High School on Wednesday.
Natick's new High School hosted class for the first time on Wednesday, officially putting to use the state-of-the-art, $78 million facility.
Zach Galvin, a Vice Principal at Natick High, predicted the new building will foster increased enthusiasm for learning in students.
"The biggest comment I've heard about the new library is 'this is a place where I want to study,'" Galvin said. "This brand new building, which is largely made up of things we never had access to, I think it will draw them in."
Seniors at the new High School agreed, saying that a modern building which incorporates the latest engineering, science and music learning systems will have an impact on their education.
"We have a lot more room to test our robots now," Christopher Wong, a member of the robotics team said while studying in the school's library. "I think that will help us win."
Each student has access to their own personal laptop which can be used in and out of the classroom. Freshman Jimmy Green said the new technology will lead to less distractions in class.
"It's going to help kids focus, a lot of websites are blocked so everything is just easy," Green said. "It's just easier to learn."
