Last year the School Board voted to continue with construction plans for the current Geiger school building and temporarily move students to the former Hunt Middle School site for the 2011-2012 school year.
Geiger students will start the 2012-13 school year on Sept. 5 at the new school site: 7401 S. Eighth St. Bell times for Geiger students will remain the same from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Visit the Geiger Web site at geigerorcas.org, for more details about the Montessori program, important dates and information or to follow updates on the construction progress.
The Geiger Montessori staff works together to provide a responsive environment in which staff, students, parents and community work cooperatively to maximize the potential of each child. Geiger's specialty focus, marine science, was developed by staff and parents, and is integrated through all areas of instruction.
Geiger is one of 12 schools in Tacoma and 33 state-wide to earn the Innovative School designation. Find out what makes Geiger innovative.
