After camping out in temporary quarters for the early part of the school year, the startup Davidson Green School has moved into its new home in a renovated house on South Main Street. With about two dozen students in grades K-4, the school offers a curriculum that emphasizes leadership and environmental stewardship.
Information sessions for parents of prospective students are planned in the new year. The sessions will be Jan. 16, 5pm; Feb. 3 and 26 at 5:30pm; and March 6 at 6pm. Register at DavidsonGreenSchool.org
