KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A new charter school in Kansas City hopes to offer an alternative for students.
The Academy for Integrated Arts opens this fall at 56th Street and Troost Avenue. Monday, the staff started working and getting ready for the students.
“There is lots of hands-on, project-based learning that the kids don't get normally in schools with larger glass size because they don't have the opportunity or the time or resources to do these unique things,” Principal Shane Knight said.
“They incorporate the arts and they're allowed to do different things, teaching them through music and dancing and just various different arts, drama … and I think that will be really good, especially for Kindergarten.” parent Latanya Handy said.
There are still several positions open for kids. Classrooms won't have more than twenty students.
