CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia International School at Scott Teays Elementary in Putnam County has a new permanent home, replacing a temporary building demolished during recent renovations at the facility.
The international school, a tuition-based Saturday program dating back to 1997, now has its own dedicated room and updated library after years in a portable. The school was created as part of an incentives package designed to bring the Toyota plant and other international corporations to West Virginia. It helps prepare Japanese students for their successful re-entry to their homeland when they return to Japan.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is slated for 10 a.m. on Oct. 25, at the school, located at 4308 Teays Valley Road in Scott Depot. The addition was funded in part with a grant from the School Building Authority.
