FLINT (WJRT) - (08/31/15) - A new school is opening up on the Flint's north side.
Monday, administrators held a dedication ceremony at the new Eagle's Nest Academy.
Children and parents got a chance to tour the offices, classrooms, auditorium, gym and other parts of the building.
Eagle's Nest is a new STEM elementary school.
The school's superintendent says it's great to see development on this side of town and it's a great opportunity for the children.
"We will partner with someone who has experience with teaching children in urban areas. And starting early. And that's where we think we'll have success. With our curriculum, our philosophy, our approach, non-traditional approach to learning. Particularly reaching boys. And so this is significant. Especially, when it comes to reaching our children at an early age," said Dr. Reginald Flynn, superintendent.
The school opens Sept. 8, the same day most other schools start their fall classes.
