Facility, enrollment grow at Pinnacle
Students stand in the shade outside a classroom after lunch Monday at Pinnacle Canyon Academy in Carbonville. The school opened Aug. 26 with almost 100 new students and nine additional classrooms to accommodate the enrollment increase. The addition to the school houses fifth through eighth grade classes, a new lunchroom, a band room and the library. The school hired six new teachers and will offer a half-day self-contained classroom for students with special needs. Preliminary numbers indicate 40 percent of the students will qualify for free or reduced lunch. The school plans to have an open house on Sept. 6.
