Michigan Aviation High School To Expand

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – An aviation-themed charter high school launched by businessman Dick DeVos in 2010 in Grand Rapids, Mich., is planning for as much as a $5 million expansion to accommodate growth. According to a report at MLive.com, the West Michigan Aviation Academy, located on Gerald R. Ford International Airport, started with 80 freshmen – 20 more than projected – with the goal of adding a grade each year. Today, the school has 145 students, but needs more space for the 2012 junior class and future seniors. The expansion will allow the school to accommodate 600 students.
