Santa Monica education officials held an opening celebration for phase one of the new $33.67 million Edison Language Academy on Jan. 21.
Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new campus at 2402 Virginia Avenue, Santa Monica.
Construction began in August 22, 2011. Students and staff moved in January 6, 2014.
Phase one of the project included the construction of 27 K-5 classrooms, Cafetorium (cafeteria and auditorium), library, administrative offices, and a computer lab.
A public opening celebration will be held once Phase 2 (playfield and preschool) is complete in the fourth quarter of 2014.
