A second night of school district celebrations in Superior Wednesday as the new and remodeled high school had its grand opening.

Tuesday night was Cooper Elementary's time to shine, but Student Council members made sure to show visitors all the cool features in their new school. 

"I personally like the cafeteria," Student Body President Noah Lear said, "because there's a lot more room than the last school." 

The students and teachers spent the 2018-2019 year in the new building, but they had to dodge some areas that were still under construction. So they said it will be great to have full use of the building during the 2019-2020 year.

Lear and fellow senior Gunnar Hansen said the biggest difference between the new space and the former one is where the academics happen.

"Before, it was a big circle, and it was easy to get lost in," Hansen said. "But now it's like three flights of stairs."

"Now that we have the three floors, it's a little bit bigger and it just takes a little longer to get to classes, but it's better overall," Lear said. 

It was a more than $50 million project, and the energy efficiency components earned the district a $200,000 rebate in February.
