Wilson Preparatory Academy will showcase its new high school and gymnasium facilities during an open house planned for 1 p.m. Monday at the 2755 Tilghman Road school.
Students have been attending class inside the high school building for about six weeks, said Daryl Woodard, Wilson Prep’s founder and executive director.
The charter school opened in 2014 for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. School officials have added a grade level each year, with growing enrollment figures requiring a second classroom building for high-schoolers.
“We’re just putting on the finishing touches in the classrooms and the gym,” Woodard said in a news release. “...Now we are ready to show the public what we are doing here as we go into the end-of-grade testing. We are very excited. The students are happy and their parents are excited as well.”
Wilson Prep serves students from Wilson, Nash, Edgecombe, Wayne and Pitt counties.
Monday’s open house will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. Guest parking will be available in front of the school.
