The San Dieguito (Calif.) Union High School District has held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of a science and math building at San Dieguito Academy High School in Encinitas.

The Del Mar Times reports that the two-story, 25,000-square-foot facility, which opened in September, replaces old concrete buildings from the 1950s more closely resembled “fallout shelters than classrooms,” Superintendent Eric Dill said.

Students now have ocean views from some of the spacious rooms in the new building. It consists of 19 classrooms.

Where two science classrooms used to have to share one lab, there are now eight labs.

Other construction projects are in progress at the high school, including culinary arts classrooms expected to be complete this November.

Construction is scheduled to begin by the end of the year for a new English, social science and arts building. The project, at 43,000 square feet and 33 classrooms, will be the second largest classroom building in the district.

The architect for the math and science building is SVA Architects, and the builder is Erickson Hall Construction.
