MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - Muskogee Public Schools plans to create a new junior high school experience at one of its schools.

Officials say they are accepting applications for the New Tech Academy at Alice Robertson Junior High School.

The New Tech Academy will be housed in a building under construction that will feature high-tech classrooms and science labs, solar and wind power and an integrated-classroom design. The new building is scheduled to open for the 2015-2016 school year, and will house core classes for 100 seventh-graders and 100 eighth-graders.

Students will experience the New Tech design in learning, which provides an instructional approach centered on project-based learning, a culture that empowers students and teachers and integrated technology in the classroom. The hands-on, multi-year approach gives schools structure and support to ensure long-term success.
