SITKA- Students at Sitka's Pacific High School are starting the new year with a new school.

For two years, Pacific High was located at the Southeast Alaska Career Center, while its new building was remodeled.
Co-principal Phil Burdick says the school has a great rotunda with a lot of light. He says each classroom also has a door to the outside, which he says ties into the school's model that learning happens in the community.
The school site has been dedicated to education for more than a century. The original was an Alaska Native training school that had one room and was segregated.
