TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The adult and community learning school in Tallahassee had a lot to celebrate Thursday.

Students at the ACE Adult and Community Learning School were welcomed their new school Thursday with a ribbon cutting.

The new school is at Appleyard Drive right beside Lively Technical School.

Superintendent Rocky Hanna said that decision was a sound decision because students can leave ACE and go right over to their vocational training.

Two students were selected to cut the ribbon along with Hanna. They said that the teachers selected those students from their biggest programs, GED and ESOL, which teaches English as a second language.

Both students said that ACE has not only helped them grow academically, but also helped them grow as a person.

"It's really helpful," said Jameeal Pye, a GED student. "They understand you as soon as you come in the door. The teachers, they are so helpful."

There are 11 locations plus online school and about 2,000 students per year are learning thanks to ACE.

ACE offers a variety of services in the community. If you'd like to find out more or even volunteer with any of them, dial 850-717-2020.
