Concrete Roses STEM Academy suddenly shutting down

Concrete Roses STEM Academy is informing parents Thursday morning that the school will shut down at the end of the week, the school principal confirmed.

Dr. Marvin Bradley, principal of the school, said he could not provide details on why the school is closing. The decision was made at an emergency board meeting Wednesday night.

"Our message to parents is that we want our kids to receive the best education, even if it is not here, because they deserve it," Bradley said.

The displaced students are eligible to enroll in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.

The school is in a small brick building off McAlpine Park Road.
