New charter school coming to Guilford County

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. The Triad Math and Science Academy is the latest charter school approved by the State Board of Ed. recently and plans are already underway to open its doors by next fall, according to the News & Record.

See this excerpt:

Organizers expect to receive final state approval in March, and then they can start accepting student applications.

Now the group must find a building, market the program, hire teachers and determine class sizes and schedules, as well as whether the school will provide bus transportation.

The Triad Math and Science Academy would cost about $1.7 million in state and local funds to operate the first year.

The academy will start serving about 270 students in kindergarten through seventh grade during the 2008-09 school year.

Grades eight through 12 will be added in subsequent years for a total of 560 students.

[Ali] Tombak (a design engineer with RFMD and a member of the academy’s board) said organizers are looking for a building of at least 22,000 to 25,000 square feet in High Point or Greensboro.


We wish them much luck, we’ll be watching closely.

E.C. 🙂
