New McBride Elem. School opens on Ft. Benning

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - School is back in session or about to start for many in the valley.

While many are returning to the same school they have known, those on Fort Benning may be attending the new McBride Elementary School on post.

An open house recently took place at the new facility for students in Kindergarten through fifth grade.

Thomas Brady, Director of Defense Education Activity, spoke about the facility and how it will help students.

"The brick and mortar design reinforces what we're trying to do with the curriculum and how teachers need to react and how we present problems to children, information to children, and how they learn," Brady said. "And so the facility reinforces what we're doing in terms of the curriculum and presentation."

Officials say the new building has the latest in technology to help students achieve more.
