Now that the construction is wrapping up, furniture is moved in and the paint job is receiving final touch-ups, Cambridge High School in Milton is just about ready to open its doors for the first day of school Aug. 13, and on July 23 the first senior class was able to take an exclusive tour of their new building.
Principal Ed Spurka took about 70 seniors on a tour of the school, pointing out the gym, auditorium, media center, senior lounge and other features.
“I like the field a lot,” said Katie Hagerty. “I think the football games will be fun.”
Hagerty and fellow classmate Kelsey Sehring have both been at Milton High School but said they decided to transfer to the new school for a change. They also said they are looking forward to being the first senior class and taking part in new traditions.
Some students, such as Vlad Popescu, said they initially switched schools because of the redistricting and new bus routes, and Popescu said after the tour he is excited about Cambridge, especially the art department.
“I like art in general so anything that has to do with that I enjoy it,” he said. “It was nicely laid out and seemed really well equipped.”
Popescu is transferring from Alpharetta High School, and his classmate Sai Muppiri said he is also excited about some of the new school’s features.
“[The library] felt really big and spacious,” he said. “My old school didn’t really have a nice library which was kind of a setback for me because I read a lot.”
