Seventy-seven percent of the 1,645 people who cast ballots Tuesday approved borrowing about $6 million for the school, well more than the 60 percent majority required.

The 20-year bond will cost the owner of a $200,000 home an additional $56 in taxes per year.

Construction of the school is to start in the spring. It's scheduled to open in August 2015.
