North Star May Add Elementary School

A school in Marquette Township may be expanding to allow a younger generation into its doors.

North Star Academy is a charter public school that has 6th through 12th-grade students right now.

Since the Marquette Area Public Schools decided to stop using Vandenboom School to teach elementary students, North Star is looking to bring an elementary school back to the township.

The proposed elementary school would be on the existing North Star campus, giving parents the option of having all their children go to school in the same place.

Right now, the school is sending out surveys to see how much demand is out there for a charter elementary school.

They’re also holding meetings that begin tomorrow night.
