HADLEY – Seven years ago, the Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School began in a rental space in South Amherst with just a kindergarten and first grade class.
And now the immersion school is on the cusp of seeing a full kindergarten through grade 12thgrade program.
The school, which relocated to space in Hadley soon after opening, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of a new 38,500-square-foot space behind the school on Route 9. It will more than double the current space now.
Work on the site began May 1. Fontaine Brothers of Springfield is building and Principal Kathleen Wang said they are hoping the new building will be ready for January 2015.
