SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – San Francisco is set to open its first new school in ten years.

Next Monday, 200 new sixth graders will attend orientation day at Willie Brown Junior Middle School.

They’re still putting the finishing touches on the campus in the Silver Terrace neighborhood.

This is a STEM school, meaning that it will focus on teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

The building itself is designed to be one of the “greenest” facilities in the city.

District officials say the aim is to give students an education comparable to one they’d receive at a private school.
