For the first time, ninth graders will be a part of the main campus at Meridian High School.
After Christmas, freshman in the Meridian Public School District will unload their buses and attend class in the new R.D. Harris Building.
Students got the opportunity to tour the building this week, to get familiar with what will be their new surroundings.
"I was expecting it to look pretty nice and good on the inside, and brand new," said Brishard Wilkins, who toured the building Wednesday.
"I was expecting in to be pretty big because it has three floors, and I was just expecting it to be really nice on the inside," said Hannah Starnes.
And the new facility didn't disappoint.
"It's more than I expected. It's really nice," Starnes.
"I think it's going to be pretty cool to be in a school and I'm the first person to be in it," said Wilkins.
The students were also able to take a tour of the other areas of the high school campus including the gym and cafeteria.
The administration has said it will have all the same expectations of the students in the new building as it did in their previous location.
When talking to the students, principal Victor Hubbard said they haven't had any problems yet this year and they are not starting now.
