First day of class for new school in Caddo Parish

Posted: Updated:
CADDO PARISH, La. -

The first new school to be built in Caddo Parish in more than 25 years opened its doors, Monday.

The Magnolia Charter School of Excellence is located on the service road of Clyde Fant Parkway between the Stoner Avenue exit and the exit to Shreveport-Barksdale in Shreveport.

Parents and children arrived bright and early, ready to walk through the doors.

For several weeks, teachers have been preparing for this day.

Some teachers even came out of retirement to be part of this new era of education.

Others left behind their teaching jobs with the Caddo Parish School District and Bossier Parish schools to teach at Magnolia Charter.

It is the first charter school in the area that is not being run by the state.

The school is owned and operated by Charter School USA, a not for profit company based in Florida.

The company has been in the business of privately operating public schools for more than a decade.
