burns gym jul2019The school started life in 1929 as an elementary school in the small community of Oak Hill in Volusia County, Florida. For budget reasons it was closed by the county school board and scheduled to be demolished in 2009. The residents banded together and in 2010 the Oak Hill Community Trust bought the property and made plans to reopen it in 2011 as a public charter school with a focus on Science and Technology.

Today it has 63 faculty and staff serving 600 students in grades K-8. For the last 5 years the school has earned a A rating from the state and in 2014 it also become an accredited Stem School; 2 years later it added the “A” for Arts to become a STEAM school. Currently there are plans to expand to the high school level.
