The school plans to house at least 191 students during its first year and only grow bigger from there.

“We have 45 acres here on this site, and we will do it in phases,” Headmaster Michelle Mena said. “Next year we are moving here from our temporary site, which is off of Long Beach Road, so we will be moving in next year when we start school back in July. We will start out with three kindergarten classes, three first grade, one second and one third grade.”

The school plans to add a new grade level over the next two years until it serves kindergarten through 5th graders.
