STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Representatives of the Starkville Oktibbeha Consolidated School District and Mississippi State University (MSU) officially opened the Partnership Middle School Tuesday morning.
The school, which is a collaboration between the school district and university, is located near the north entrance to MSU’s campus in Starkville across from the Thad Cochran Research, Technology and Economic Development Park.
The school will house the Starkville school district’s 6th and 7th-grade students and serve as a lab for the MSU College of Education.
The school has dozens of classrooms, pod learning centers, a band wing, an art room, a gym and safe rooms on the multi-story building.
WTVA will have more on this story coming up later today on WTVA 9 News.
