Loudon County Schools is one of the dozens of school districts starting back in the next few days.
When students at Ft. Loudoun Middle School head back to school on Wednesday, they will walk into a brand new, state of the art facility.
Faculty and staff at Ft. Loudoun Middle School have been working furiously the past few days to get everything set up for the first day of school. Friday was the first day they were allowed to move in.
"We're all ready to go. We're excited to see the students and we can't wait to see their expressions when they come in," said 8th eighth grade language arts teacher, Scott Hinds.
Crews put on finishing touches Tuesday afternoon.
Teachers say it is going to make a big difference in how they're able to teach.
First of all, they have enough classrooms for every teacher. At their previous building, some teachers taught out of locker rooms and storage rooms that were not meant to be classrooms.
They also have added sciences labs, iPad labs, and smart boards in every room.
Loudon County Director of Schools Jason Vance said this school has been a long time coming.
"This has been a really long process to get to this point in time. We had to overcome a lot of different obstacles. First of all, funding. We'd really like to thank the County Commission. Without them this wouldn't have been possible to fulfill this goal, this dream we've been trying to accomplish for quite some time," Vance said.
The old Ft. Loudoun Middle School building will now be used for the elementary school.
