WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- For the Cape Fear Center for Inquiry it is an especially exciting time as they are entering a legitimate school building for the first time in school history.
Renee Lemons is a teacher, "We've been looking for a permanent home for 13 years so this really is a dream come true. We've been working hard at it for all those years and this will be the first time that we've been in a space that really was designed to be a school."
Friday afternoon was a ribbon cutting for the school's new facility. Parents, students and faculty seemed very excited.
Brian Corrigan is the schools director. "We have now five acres, almost six acres of space and inquiry education needs a lot of space and we've never had that. We’ve done a great job and now we're going to have the space to do an even better job."
The kindergarten through eighth grade school now has everything it needs and school starts at the Cape Fear Center for Inquiry on Tuesday.
