King Academy Open House
King Academy of Math and Science will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony and community open house to celebrate the newly-renovated school. The open house will be held:
Thursday, Oct. 1
King Academy of Math and Science
1849 Forest Ave.
Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the building and teachers will be available in classrooms to demonstrate the school’s technology upgrades, including ceiling projectors and wireless microphones located in every classroom.
“Along with technology upgrades, we now have walls separating our classrooms and new windows where we did not have walls or windows before, so everyone is really enjoying the natural lighting,” said Thomas Simmons, King Academy principal.
King Academy’s $6.4 million renovations also include a new computer lab, enhanced security, and a geothermal heating and cooling system. The school was originally built in 1974 and is home to 300 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
