HAMPDEN, Maine (NEWS CENTER)--The new Hampden Academy is days away from opening for class and Monday night the building was dedicated.
The new building is reminiscent of the old one but it has a few bells and whistles that set it apart.
The new Hampden Academy was built with a high standard of education in mind. The school has been fitted with some high tech upgrades that make it different from the old building.
Students will be getting I-pads to use to study with. Work they do can be projected on a screen in front of the class.
Teachers say the device is changing how they teach and it will allow for more interaction in his class.
