‘BUILDING OUR FUTURE’ – Natomas Charter School Star Academy
(One in a series of short, weekly videos highlighting how NUSD is enhancing facilities to create 21st-century learning opportunities. Please take a look.)
Natomas Charter School’s Star Academy opened in its new location last year as the first new school built since the local building moratorium was lifted. It features a computer lab, art room, library, collaborative workspaces, tables that fit together easily for group learning, and flexible seating options to enhance student comfort. The school serves hundreds of students from Transitional Kindergarten through 5th grade. Completion of the new Star Academy allowed its students to relocate from a commercial building on East Commerce Way to a 59,000-square-foot campus on nearly nine acres in North Natomas. The project was a key part of our facilities master plan.
