Montessori Academy Added To 'Priority' List

A fourth building in the Benton Harbor school district has been identified as a 'priority' by the state of Michigan. Tracy Williams with BHAS says Montessori Academy was added to the list this fall. The state gives four options to choose from in moving the school forward; turn around, transformation, restart or closure. The district is transforming the four schools.


Superintendent Dr. Leonard Seawood says the listing comes a couple years after the district moved to a 1-8 system. This caused stronger students from Montessori to be displaced to other buildings.
