ST. PAUL - A first of its kind school is now open in the "saintly city."

Parkway Montessori Middle Schoolis the first ever Montessori middle school in the St. Paul public school district.

The school will house 6th and 7th graders this year and then expand to 8th grade as well next year.

Last year the building was home to a French immersion school but crews did an extensive renovation over the summer.

Montessori is a learning style that caters to a student's individual strengths and is most commonly offered at private schools.

KARE 11's Bryan Piatt shows us around the new school.
