MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - St. Patrick’s Catholic Church Downtown plans to turn its former elementary school into a Montessori school near the FedEx Forum, according to the Memphis Business Journal.

St. Patrick Catholic School, part of the Jubilee Catholic School Network was closed in 2019.

The hope is to open the school in Fall 2020 starting with pre-K children.

Montessori is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children.
