Students whose families live in the Navy Federal area of Escambia County are gearing up to attend two brand new schools.
Members of the media gathered at Beulah Middle School’s main lobby area on Wednesday, taking in that “new school smell.”
The school is 205,000 square feet under one roof and cost $45 million, funded by the Local Option Sales Tax. Eventual student capacity will be around 1,200.
The first stop on the tour – led by Assistant Principal Marietta McCaskill – was a state-of-the art gymnasium for the Beulah Bears.
