New Oglethorpe Charter School halfway complete

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Savannah Chatham County Schools showed off the halfway progress on the Oglethorpe Charter School Jan. 30. The school will have a theater, up to date technology and a fully functioning cafeteria. The principal says it is one of the oldest schools in the country and seeing the progress on the new building is encouraging, especially for his staff.

"They have been in a very challenging environment for the past 13 years and they are excited about the move, they are excited about the bigger school. They are excited about everything that comes along with it, especially the technology. We are kind of at a dead end with our technology at our old school," said Kevin Wall, Oglethorpe Charter School Principal.

The school, located on Central Ave. near the Alee Temple, is funded through the Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.
