Excitement building for new downtown Las Vegas school

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Parents and educators are getting excited about a new school in downtown Las Vegas set to open soon.

The 9th Bridge School is part of the Downtown Project, and, no surprise, it's located at the corner of Bridge and 9th streets.

On Thursday night, parents learned about the school, set to open on Aug. 26.

For the first year, it will be open to children 6 weeks old through kindergarten. Educators hope to add at least one grade a year all the way up to 12th grade.

"We decided to start with early childhood because these are very important years, and we want to grow the school as the children grow as well," said Connie Yeh with the Downtown Project.

Teachers will employ learning techniques based on neuroscience and social-emotional learning.

Students will be encouraged to develop creative and entrepreneurial skills.
