April 3, 2015 Category: People

String Theory Schools is a charter school in the former Glaxo Smith Kline building at 16th and Vine Streets. The school opened in 2001, moved into the building in 2012. Students in kindergarten through 5th grade take seven extra classes, including three performing arts classes, before picking a major (anything from arts to STEM) in 6th grade.

“We also wanted to make this building about reaching out to the city as a whole, engaging with entrepreneurship, engaging with the tech and civic tech scene, so students here have an opportunity to work with companies,” Jason Corsonite said, adding that the building just opened up its 8th floor as an incubator space for small businesses to work for free.
