Students, parents, faculty, government officials and community supporters will participate in a brief ceremony followed by light refreshments in celebration of The Museum School's recent move from a modular campus on Covington Highway to a permanent schoolhouse.
Now in its third year, the DeKalb County charter school spent its first two years in modular classrooms on a parking lot owned by Avondale Estates First Baptist Church. This year, the DeKalb Board of Education began leasing the former Forrest Hills Elementary School to The Museum School free of charge.
The Museum School is responsible for renovating and maintaining the campus. The school is in the midst of a 5-year, $3 million capital campaign to fund extensive repairs and improvements. Phase one of the project was completed in August.
