FIRST LOOK: The new Collierville High School design

COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC) - Plans for the new Collierville High School are coming to life.

A group of architects created a "virtual tour" to show off the school.

The new school will replace the existing high school which, according to officials, has become overcrowded.

The plan also calls for a new football stadium.

Thirty percent of the design is complete and architects are working on estimating the final cost of the project.

Construction is expected to start in May, with the new school opening for the Fall 2018 school year.
