In the era of increased globalization, a newly opened Fairfield-Suisun Unified school will fit right in.
To ribbon-cutting fanfare, after more than two years in the making, from idea to realization, the Dover Academy for International Studies opened on Monday.
And on Wednesday, when the year’s first bell rings in the county’s largest district, the East Alaska Avenue campus, a K-8 school that was the subject of a recent series of upgrades and maintenance to its 33 rooms, will welcome 574 students and 22 teachers, said Superintendent Kris Corey.
In the coming years, attendance will climb to an estimated 800, she said.
