Gifted school opens in Youngstown

Lewis school ribbon cutting

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Downtown Youngstown is the home of a new private school for gifted children.

Classrooms for the Lewis School for Gifted Learning Potential are inside Trinity United Methodist Church. Right now, the school has third through sixth grades but plans to expand in the future. Twenty three students are enrolled in the school.

“It is going to mix a lot of cultural, a lot of past experiences, classes like Latin, French, classics with iPads, textbooks, 3-D printing, so it’s real unique. The first school of its type in the Mahoning Valley,” said Mike Pecchia, president of Youngstown Christian School.

Classes at the new school start Sept. 2.
