Media members given a tour of new intermediate school in Austin

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The media was invited to get a sneak peak of the new I.J. Holton Intermediate School in Austin Wednesday afternoon. 

Holton Principal Jean McDermott conducted the tour.

The 144,000-square-foot school includes a multi-purpose lunch room that can be transformed into a gymnasium and stage, a see-through elevator for kids to see the inside-workings of an elevator, media and band rooms with an acoustic design and several science and math lab rooms.

Austin has not built a new school in 10 years.

New Principal Jean McDermott says she's looking forward to opening the doors. Construction started last summer. The school will be finished in mid-July and will open for the new school year this fall.
