Walton County School District officials ushered in a new era in education, snipping the ribbon on the new Emerald Coast Middle School.

The 130-thousand square foot facility will be the new home to more than 800 students this fall and it will be chocked full of the latest technology.

"As education is changing, you have to adapt and put those components into the changing times. So we have to adapt to the learning style that these students have, and we have to incorporate all of those components into the school" said Director of Facilities Mark Gardner.

"We can almost coin ourselves as a 'magnet school of science and technology.' Probably, just the opportunity that we are going to be able to give middle school-aged students now is more than what they may be getting at their current schools" said Principle Charlie Marello.

The 40-acre campus is also designed to be able to incorporate an elementary school sometime in the near future.
