Kansas City's newest charter high school opened Wednesday. Well, not totally new.
The Ewing Marion Kauffman School has been on the Kansas City charter landscape for four years now.
It opened in 2011 with a lone fifth-grade class and gradually expanded, adding a grade each year. Now, the school is opening a brand new building on its campus near 63rd Street and Paseo Boulevard.
And that original fifth-grade class will become Kauffman's first set of ninth-graders.
