A+ Charter Schools broke ground today on a facility for grades 7-12 after an almost year-long hiatus. The ceremony was met with applause and a crowd full of high spirits with the school finally making its way to Maricopa.

“It is an honor for me to be here today after three years of hard work from so many of us,” said Principal Rachele Reese.

Many city officials, including Mayor Christian Price, were in attendance for the ceremony as well as parents and children who have long supported the new school.

Reese cited the mayor’s “city of dreams” ideology in the most recent State of the City address as inspiration to complete the school and keep powering on. “When I look at our beautiful logo, I see an opportunity for real transformation in our educational system that is so much to advance our community’s plan to be a city of dreams.”
