Newly renovated Forest Park Middle School opens

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

A more than 100-year-old school in Springfield has a new look.

Forest Park Middle School underwent a two-year $43 million dollar renovation.

On Tuesday, Mayor Domenic Sarno, Superintendent Daniel Warwick and others toured the Oakland Street school.

The renovations added dozens of more classrooms and state of the art science labs.

Parents and teachers said they're happy to see the old school re-vamped for the children.

"I'm just happy that my daughter's comfortable where she's going everyday. She's comfortable here and she likes it and I'm glad that she's happy," said Erica Gonzalez.

"If you had been here a few years ago, you would have seen quite a different scene than the one here today. The kids look forward to coming to school now, so that's a big thing," said teacher James Sass.
