City leaders, teachers and students celebrated Reedley Middle College High School's first day. The school is located on Reedley College's campus, and was launched with the school and the Kings Canyon Unified School District.
Students will earn a high school diploma and college credit simultaneously, but will not cost students extra money. They can also begin working towards a certificate, associate degree or become transfer-ready depending on the classes they choose.
This is one of 13 middle college high schools across the country.
