St. Joseph High School students head back to class

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Students at the new Saint Joseph High School headed back to class on Thursday.

The state-of-the-art building is located on Notre Dame Avenue near downtown South Bend.

ABC57 talked with the principal on Thursday afternoon.

She says it is going to take some time to get settled into the new building.

"This has been a wonderful day. We've been waiting for this for so long," Susan Richter said. "A dream come true for a lot of people. And we're very appreciative of the overwhelming generosity we've had in order to get this beautiful building."

Teachers and students also said they are excited about the new building.

The school still needs some work done.

The new chapel will not be finished until October.
