$350 million high school finally opens in LA

A $350 million high school in Los Angeles that has gone through many delays as a result of environmental, seismic and legal troubles has finally opened . The school has been behind schedule for almost a decade.

Many students have been waiting for this for a long time. "A lot of people in the community were supposed to graduate from here, but they didn't. I thought it was going to be the same for me" said Uriel Rivera, an 18-year-old senior at the Edward R. Roybal Learning Center

The school resembles a college campus, with several classroom buildings surrounding a landscaped courtyard. It boasts a gym with capacity to hold 3,000, a large dance studio with cushioned maple floors, 480 underground parking spaces - and a $17 million toxic gas mitigation system that costs $250,000 a year to operate.
