BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota's newest high school is open for business.
Classes began Thursday at Legacy High School in Bismarck, which hosts 800 students. Principal Tom Schmidt says the school has modern features that will enhance learning.
Legacy is Bismarck's third high school. Ground was broken in September 2013 for the 289,000-square-foot, $56 million school.
Bismarck voters in 2012 overwhelmingly approved an $86.5 million bond issue to build the new high school and two elementary schools to deal with crowding problems and anticipated enrollment growth.
