The Madison Primary School is officially open for business.
After being closed for a year due to renovations, school officials unveiled the improved school last week. Dozens of staff and community members toured the building, commenting on the modern classrooms, increased lighting and aesthetically pleasing details.
Principal Mike Coiner said he was so grateful and excited for the changes made to the school. He said the project will enhance the learning of students and offers a beautiful place for them. He thanked everyone for making the renovation possible, as well as all those who had to move into temporary spaces to accommodate the closure of the building during the last school year.
Every inch of the building has been redone, with new HVAC, lighting, flooring, furniture and more. The old circular layout is gone, replaced by a new central hallway that connects all of the spaces and improves the traffic flow. The bathrooms have been redone and the library features a more up-to-date media center style approach.
The building will see its first students next week when the new school year begins Tuesday.
