Officials break ground on new ABQ school

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A new unique school is coming to southwest Albuquerque.

APS broke ground today on a pre-k through eighth grade school in the West Mesa area. It will serve as many as 1,300 students

The new school will place a heavy emphasis on use of technology and providing an environment where students of many ages can work together.

“There’s a lot of advantages, first of all research has said that those students who attend K-8 schools actually perform, have higher achievement scores than do their peers,” APS Superintendent Winston Brooks said.

The new school will help relieve overcrowding at surrounding schools.

Construction is expected to be completed by July of 2015.
