New Alternative School Mixes Music With Education

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. - Yakima's newest alternative high school will offer something different for students, something many say Yakima is is severely lacking.

Classes will be held above the Mills Music Store downtown, providing a unique arts and education experience.   They began registering students this morning.

The Mills-Epic Center of Art and Education will be replacing the OIC facility on Fruitvale Boulevard.  The new school is housed in the old Nordstrom building on Yakima Avenue. 

General Manager Monty Mills says it's a partnership between his business, the Yakima School District and EPIC.  150 students are expected to sign up.
