TIDE school welcomes students for the first time

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hattiesburg's newest school welcomed students for the first time Monday.

The TIDE School is a privately owned non-profit school for 6th through 9th grade students with dyslexia.

Students shared their excitement to the start of the school year. 

 "I think it's going to be a great year already. It's going to be very easy, very simple, very fun I think," said Mark Holland, 7th grader.

Braden Cupit, 7th grader, said,  "It's pretty great, it's real great. Right now, my favorite teacher is Mr. Moreno."

Executive Director of the TIDE school Christie Brady said she is glad everyone is having a good start to the school year. 

"You see, I think it's going pretty well, they seem pretty relaxed and glad to be here and that's what we wanted to happen first is for them to be glad to be here," Brady said.

The school is 6th through 9th grade and currently hopes to add another grade each year.
