DENISON, TX--- Anticipation is building in Denison as the city's high school reaches its final stages of construction. They say everything is bigger in Texas and Denison's new 350 thousand square foot high school is no exception.

"I think it's going to be outstanding," Denison ISD Superintendent Dr. Henry Scott said. "All of the classrooms will be full-sized and there will be plenty of space in the school. It will be modern and up to date so it's a wonderful thing for our students."

The $62 million dollar school is about 40% larger then the old one, which was built in the 1950s.
Thanks to the added space, this school will be able to accommodate 1,500 students, which is about 300 more than their current enrollment. 

The big move won't happen until fall 2014, but that hasn't slowed the yellow jackets excitement for their brand new school.
