A new school being built in Horry County follows a national trend making new classrooms more high-tech and less low tech.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that the middle school being built in the Carolina Forest area has 48 classrooms, but no lockers.
School officials said lockers are not as much in demand because with computers, students don’t have to carry around the books they had to carry in the past. The board made a decision to not have lockers in the new building.
The new school has a gym, cafeteria, meeting spaces, a media center, 48 classrooms with another 10 special education/shared spaces, large wooden beams below the ceiling, lots of natural light inside.
The school still has some work to be done on it before students can start learning in it. The school is scheduled to open by the fall 2017 semester.
