GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The first building at Gulfport High School was torn down this morning. The demolition of the athletic building started at 9 a.m. The vo tech building will be the next to go.

The demolition of several buildings on the campus will make way for a $39 million school.

The work was supposed to start earlier this year, but district leaders wanted to wait until students were out for the summer break. The new school should be finished in three years.
