When a family outgrows its one-bedroom apartment, it looks for a new space in which to grow.
The same thing is happening at Hershorin Schiff Community Day School, just on a larger scale.
The school, which enrolls 270 students from 12 months to eighth grade, will move from 1050 S. Tuttle Ave. to the intersection of Wilkinson and McIntosh roads, giving it a capacity of 300 students and additional facilities.
The new location will not only offer the school a chance for expansion, but it also will be more centrally located in the county, which Head of School Dan Ceaser said would allow the campus to serve more families throughout the county.
Since Hershorin Schiff became an independent community day school five years ago, the demand has tripled.
“We’ve just outgrown the campus,” Ceaser said. “We’ve been renting it, and it’s been a dream of our board of trustees for us to own our own space, and we’ve been working toward that goal for several years.”
