TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

The new Brookwood High School will open its doors to the community for an open house on Thursday night at 6 p.m.

The new Tuscaloosa County school is much larger than the former Brookwood High School, which was more than 50 years old.

Teachers worked with architects to design each department of the school to suit the needs of different areas of learning. The school also has facilities for technical and career training.

Brookwood High teacher Molly Wagner has been at the school for 29 years. She says the move is bittersweet because of all the years spent in the former building, but much needed and appreciated.

"The first time the faculty was able to tour the building, there were tears in many eyes, just because we never thought we would see this day," Wagner said. "And this day has finally arrived, and I think our community and our students are very deserving of being in a state-of-the-art facility."

The school is located off Highway 216 in Brookwood, just behind Brookwood Elementary School.
