Discovery Charter will focus on STEM programming
Inver Grove Heights will be home to a new charter school that administrators say will be one of the first of its kind.
Discovery Charter School STEM Fuse will open in time for the 2016-2017 school year.
Discussions about forming the new independent public school began two years ago, said Dan Hurley, executive director. He explained that Discovery applied for a start-up grant, which it received from the Minnesota Department of Education for $625,000.
