The school is set to open this fall and many parents are excited about it.
"I feel it's a great opportunity for this kids, you know, it's something different to explore," said Kerstin Martin, parent of 8th grade student.
Students will learn on a project based level instead of lectures like given at regular high schools and this has one incoming freshman excited.
"I just think it's a lot more professional just then conventional high school, I think that we can learn a lot more from this and get a lot more of a high school experience than just conventional with this program," said 8th grade student, Patrick Martin.
Although parents are excited, some still want more information.
"I would like to see more results on other places to see how the kids are doing and stuff," said Olivia Bonilla. Bonilla is still thinking about filling out an application fr her child to attend NTHS.
NTHS will welcome in 100 incoming freshman and the teachers have already been chosen. Our own Elite Educator of the week is excited to be a part of New High School and to see students excited to go to school.
"I just got so excited about being able to take part in this kind of a learning atmosphere," said Mary Margaret Smith. Smith is currently an Abilene High School Librarian and soon to be NTHS teacher.
Martin says he is glad to see a school like this come to abilene.
"I think Abilene needs something like this just to be recognize, so we have something that we can stand out from, from other places in texas and i just think it's a good program."
If you missed this session you still have another chance to attend.
