The Eyemouth development is the second of three new high schools in the Borders as part of a £60m project
The second new school in a £60m project to build three new secondaries in the Borders has opened its doors.
The Eyemouth High School was built in a public private partnership between Scottish Borders Council and Scottish Borders Education Partnership (SBEP).
Head teacher Dave Watson said it was a "first rate building" which the community could take pride in.
The last of the three new schools - at Earlston - is expected to be handed over to the council in the summer.
The first new high school in Duns opened last month.
Mr Watson said there was great enthusiasm about the Eyemouth building.
He said: "We can already feel within the school community of pupils, parents and staff a real excitement about the opportunities the school offers us as we aspire to develop a culture of ambition and achievement."
Parent council representative Gillian Simmons said it had been exciting to watch the new school "grow" over the past 18 months.
She added that young people in the area now had a "state of the art facility" which she was sure would "inspire them to do their best".
SBC's executive member for education, Catriona Bhatia, said the building was a fine addition to the town.
She said: "I am sure that, like me, everyone who visits the school will be hugely impressed by its quality and striking, modern design.
"The building provides a real sense of place and in Eyemouth the importance of the sea to the town is clearly reflected in the new school."
