FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) – Findlay students returned from their holiday break to two new school buildings.

The Glenwood and Donnell middle schools have brand new buildings this semester. The new Glenwood building is 18,000 square feet, with two floors and three wings.

"Going from a building that was built in 1926 to a 21st-century state-of-the-art building…the feeling is phenomenal," said David Alvarado, Glenwood principal. "I think everyone is just excited to be here."

Both new buildings are equipped with new computers and smart boards. They cost $74 million to build.

Students got a peek at their new schools before Christmas break, and some didn't want to leave.

Although construction is still a work in progress, students and faculty are admiring their new space.

"This is the start to a building that will give us many years of wonderful memories and new traditions, great use and great education," said Don Williams, Donnell principal.
