High school for special needs students opens in Jamestown
JAMESTOWN, N.C. — Guilford County Schools Superintendent Mo Green joined teachers Monday in welcoming students to one of the district’s newest buildings.
The Christine J. Greene Education Center opens its doors this school year to serve special needs high school students.
GCS spent $6.5 million on the center, which sits next to Ragsdale High School in Jamestown.
It’s one of two buildings replacing the old McIver Education Center and is named after former Ragsdale high guidance counselor Christine J. Greene. Greene, who also worked as a teacher, later went on to represent Guilford County on the North Carolina Board of Education.
The 18-classroom school comes equipped with the latest technology and offers more space and tools for student learning.
