The Villages Introduces Middleton
The Villages just shared some exciting news in The Villages Daily Sun and Vmail about an all-new family-friendly community designed for the folks that serve the residents of The Villages. In addition, they also shared a few more details on the future expansion of The Villages Charter School. If you have not already had the chance, I invite you to take a moment to watch the video that was shared as well as read the newspaper insert.
As you may be aware, the expansion of The Villages Charter School with an additional K-8 Campus and an all-new high school campus gives us the opportunity to continue to provide a quality education to the families of The Villages current and future employees, business partners and on-property businesses that serve the residents of The Villages community.
You will likely be excited and may even have a few questions about the new schools and what this means for your kiddos. You may be wondering about which campus your child will attend, how transportation, traffic and car lines will be handled. In the coming months, we’ll ask for your input, track your frequently asked questions, keep you updated on the progress and plans, and bring you the answers to these questions and more as we work towards a fall of 2023 opening.
