DELAWARE, OH (WCMH) — As students at Olentangy Local Schools head back to class Wednesday, more than 900 of them will be heading to the brand new Olentangy Berlin High School.
Students walked into the building Wednesday morning, greeted by staff members and administrators.
The district broke ground on the building more than two years ago in preparation for this school year.
The school takes its name from Berlin Township School, which opened in 1915 and closed in 1952, when the Olentangy Local Schools district was created. It is now the fourth high school in the district.
While the building is similar to two of the district’s other high schools, Liberty and Orange, Todd Spinner, the school principal, said there are some updates, including wider hallways and student collaboration spaces where students may work independently.
Only about 925 students in grades 9 through 11 will come to class here, but more than 4,000 people showed up to tour the new building earlier this month.
