Aerial views of distinctive campuses across the country.

Sometimes to really appreciate something, you need to change your perspective.

Renowned French novelist Marcel Proust once said, "the real voyage of discovery comes not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."

MaxPreps provides "new eyes" to help discover 10 of the coolest high school campuses in the nation via Google Earth. Time to begin your real voyage of discovery.

Here is a snapshot of the 10 schools featured in the video:

Allen (Texas): The school already has a multi-million dollar football stadium, but it also has an impressive array of baseball and softball fields and an extra football field.
Bentonville (Ark.): A two-time MaxPreps Cup champion, Bentonville has a campus that stretches almost 10 city blocks.
Stevenson (Pebble Beach, Calif.): It's easy to see why Stevenson ranks as one of the top golf programs in the state. It's near the famed Pebble Beach golf course.
Westminster (Atlanta, Ga.): Winner of nearly 300 state championships, Westminster sits in a picturesque setting where the athletic fields are carved out of a heavily wooded area in Atlanta.
Parkland (Allentown, Pa.): From outer space, the Parkland campus looks like something from another world. The campus has a unique Millennium Falcon shape.
Punahou (Honolulu, Hawaii): The Buff 'N Blue have won over 500 state championships and are located just a few miles from Waikiki Beach.
Bolles (Jacksonville, Fla.): The Bulldogs have one of the top swimming programs in the nation, as evidenced by the Olympic-size pool that's just beyond the school's front doors.
Baylor (Chattanooga, Tenn.): Built along the Tennessee River, Baylor School overlooks the water with the athletic fields in among the woods lining the waterway.
Valley Christian (San Jose, Calif.): Sitting atop a ridge in South San Jose, Valley Christian stretches the length of the rise with the football field at one end and the baseball field at the other.
IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.): Just a short distance from the Gulf of Mexico, IMG Academy hosts 16 soccer fields, a dozen tennis courts, three football fields and nine baseball fields, not to mention a small golf course and an Olympic-size pool.

High school basketball: Top-ranked Montverde Academy earns fifth GEICO Nationals title with 62-52 win over No. 3 Sunrise Christian Academy
No. 1 Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.) used a perfect third quarter to help capture its fifth GEICO Nationals title since 2013, defeating No. 3 Sunrise Christian Academy (Bel Aire, Kan.) 62-52 in Saturday's championship game. The Eagles executed their offense flawlessly after halftime, outscoring the Buffaloes 28-17 while shooting 12-of-12 from the field on 12 assists.

Trailing 51-38 entering the fourth quarter, the Buffaloes opened the period on a 9-2 run that cut the Eagles deficit to six points with 4:23 remaining. Kevin Boyle's team responded, however, with a 6-0 run of its own to close the door on a Sunrise comeback.

Montverde Academy (24-1) has won the most GEICO Nationals titles in event history, winning previously in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2018.
