St. Paul charter school to close June 30

June 21, 2019 06:25 PM

A St. Paul charter school serving students in kindergarten through eighth grade will close at the end of this month.

West Side Summit, which has been open the past six school years, announced in a press release this week that it will be closing its doors effective June 30.


The release said the school's board of directors voted to make the decision at a board meeting Tuesday due to "stagnant reading scores and declining math scores."

West Side Summit had 170 students enrolled during the 2018-19 school year.

The school said a school fair will be held for students and their families next Friday, and that they are working with other schools to help students find the best options.
