New Woods Charter School Opens

Yesterday, Woods Charter School celebrated the grand opening of its new 65,000 sqft facility near Briar Chapel. In addition to computer, biology and chemistry labs, the new school includes a gymnasium, a stage for a variety of events, and a soccer field. The new school is already near capacity at more than 485 students, due in part to the fact that the school's SAT scores rank sixth highest for a public school in North Carolina. Newland Communities (the developers of Briar Chapel) donated the 19 acres for the school.
