FORT WORTH, Texas - Fort Worth ISD hopes newly renovated spaces at Arlington Heights High School will better prepare its students for the future.
The district showed off its new modern instructional areas on Wednesday.
A two-story library and media center is giving students a college-like atmosphere on campus.
There are also newly renovated fine arts spaces and more career and technology education options at the school.
FWISD Superintendent Kent Scribner says the improvements will help students academically and economically.
"85% of our students are economically disadvantaged," he explained. "The best way in my view the only way to break the cycle of poverty is through education, and investing in our classrooms today is the best investment we can make."
Renovations are still ongoing at the school. When they're finished, about 93,000 square feet of educational space will have been given a makeover.
