District provides site for new charter high school

PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix elementary school district has teamed up with a charter school to open a high school focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Madison Highland Prep opened this month on a campus shared with the Madison Elementary District's Madison Park Middle School in central Phoenix.

The Arizona Republic ( ) reports that students of both schools use the athletic fields, cafeteria, library and bus system.

The 6,000-student Madison district's territory overlaps with part of the Phoenix Union High School District, but Madison decided in 2013 it wanted to offer its students an alternative after middle school.

The new school's principal is Kerry Clark. He had applied to open a charter school when he learned that Madison wants to partner to open a high school.
