Norwalk officials cut ribbon on new Concord Magnet School building
Norwalk officials cut the ribbon on the new Concord Magnet School after the K-8 school moved.
The former Colombus Magnet School called South Norwalk home since the 80s,but is now in a wing on the campus of Ponus Ridge Middle School.
Officials say the former CMS building will now serve as the new South Norwalk Neighborhood School.
Concord Magnet School's new name replaced 'Colombus' during a movement about a year ago that happened all over the country.
"Realizing that Columbus was not the best name for buildings, so we talked about it as a community," Principal Medard Thomas says. "Concord means in accordance with harmony, and we're also on Concord Street, so it made perfect sense."
