The middle and high school students of the School of the Arts program return to school today, but to their new $59.3 million building.

As with most new schools, this one has a feature list to make you very jealous -- especially when you compare it to the non-cutting edge nature of the school you wenr to.

But the home for 1,225 students represents only a partly complete campus; the Academic Magnet High is set to open on a shared campus with the arts school later this year.

The Post and Courier has a nice piece on the new school; read it here and check out the photos.
