2019/20 :

1st - 8th grade
The Board has signed a five-year lease for a rental space to start a modern, one-room schoolhouse for grades 1st – 8th, much like the Springhill Community School in our area. Another modern term would be a “micro-school.” The vision is to have a small, independent school designed for children who need a flexible and personalized learning environment. 

"Why a modern one-room schoolhouse?"

Below are links to several articles and blogs on the rise of the "Micro-school" that make a compelling case.
