YAKIMA, WA -- NBC Right Now was there as Davis High School students took their first steps into the brand new commons area Wednesday.

Students said it's something they've been waiting for all year long, and it didn't disappoint.

The new commons area is only one part of Davis High School's $97 million renovation. Students can now enjoy air-conditioning while they eat and look out the large windows toward the downtown area.
 
The new "E" Building which became the math and science building, is also up and running.

The school offered tours of the new buildings Wednesday afternoon. Students said the new buildings create a better learning experience.

"If you're around not as nice, like the old cafeteria, I guess you could say it's kind of like oh I just want to ditch class or leave," said Daniel Catton. "But with the new it really does give you school pride because your school's nice. You want people to come to it. You want people to come and see what you're a part of because it's something really awesome."

The "C" Building is the next big undertaking. The construction planning principal said it will hold the administrative office, library and the art classrooms. The entire construction project is supposed to be finished by the Fall of 2015.
