A 140-year history has ended for the North Bennington Graded School.
Residents of North Bennington voted three times to close their public school and establish a new, independent academy in the old school building. Now that school is taking shape.
Educators in North Bennington say the students shouldn’t notice any difference at all when the independent North Bennington Village School opens in the fall.
Thomas Martin, the former principal at the old school, will be back as the Village School’s headmaster.
