RIO RANCHO, N.M. — More than 100 parents, tribal leaders, city officials and even the state’s secretary of education came out to celebrate the town of Bernalillo’s new high school Friday morning.
Staged outside the school’s new all-glass front entrance, the event signified the end of the 1950s-era campus and the start of more modern times for Bernalillo High School.
The 76,000-square-foot building is two-stories high and each classroom features the latest technology. The school has motion-sensor lights and 70-inch Mondopads in every classroom. The touchscreen pads look like flat-screen televisions and perform the same functions as a personal computer, but can double as a whiteboard.
