Video: Ten new high schools via Google Earth
These campuses still have the new classroom smell.
One thing to know about Google Earth images — they may be anywhere from a month to three years old, if not older. It makes finding images of new schools challenging as many appear as empty fields or unfinished construction.
Last week, we took a look at the oldest schools
across the country, and today MaxPreps offers a look at some of the newer schools across the country via Google Earth. Many of the newest schools are private schools or public charters with only a few large public schools in the mix.
