Scott Johnson said when he heard about the Tomorrow River Community Charter School, he felt having it located at the Central Wisconsin Environmental Station was a natural fit.
Johnson, the director of the 200-acre teaching and learning center, approached representatives about the possibility, and the school will be open there this fall. He said the station’s affiliation with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources will offer the school a unique atmosphere to offer to its students.
“They can work with our staff and our university students. They can have the opportunity to work in our organic garden or with our chickens,” Johnson said. “Everything we have worked hard to do over the past eight years I have been here has provided a great opportunity for this school to be successful here. It’s feels right to have them at this location.”
