Andover High School's new privately-funded language lab is in the process of coming online and was scheduled to be toured by residents at an open house on Wednesday, March 31.

Wiring and computers have been installed, but the lab's high-tech equipment won't be online until the end of the week, said Ellen Gaudiano, AHS Spanish teacher and lead foreign language teacher.

Once fully operational, students will use computers and state-of-the-art audio equipment to interact with multimedia-based lessons from around the world, said AHS Spanish teacher Chris Krueger.
