OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — We're getting a better idea of what the new high school at Boys Town will look like.

The new three-story facility will house "all students" on campus, including the students currently in the high school and Wegner school buildings.

Officials broke ground on the property today.

Boys Town and community leaders celebrated saying bringing all of the students together under one roof is wonderful and the facility takes an innovative approach to education.

"A functional, efficient and flexible learning environment with technology helps reduce the stress and promotes the success of our students. This architectural design was spent many, many hours incorporating suggestions from our students, faculty and too many groups to mention."

The old high school was built in 1948 and desperately needed to be updated.

Boys Town says the needs of children have changed since then, which is why a new high school needed to be built.
