FORT GAY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- It's new beginnings for students in Fort Gay, West Virginia.

Students, parents, staff and faculty came together to celebrate their new school.

The open house gave the community a chance to take a tour of both the middle and elementary school wings.

It took about two years to build the school.

It was finished just in time for students to attend classes this fall.

Principal Donita Webb tells that she has high hopes for her students. She says she believes the new school and learning equipment will help them succeed.

"We are ready to blow the top off of our test scores so that Fort Gay Pre-K - 8 becomes number one in the county and would like it to be number one in the state," Webb said. "We love them and this is what we want for the whole community."

About 580 students go to the new school. It cost about $20-million to build.
