TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

One East Toledo charter school is moving and their new location will allow more students and help reduce community crime.

Broken windows at the future site of the L. Hollingworth School for the Talented and Gifted are being replaced with new ones, helping to bring new life to the community eye-sore.

The current school site is also located in East Toledo but officials say they are rapidly running out of space. Enrollment has skyrocketed and officials hope to eventually expand their current kindergarten through 8th grade school into a kindergarten through 12th grade school.

The new building off Miami Street will help with the expansion. School officials say the majority of their students live on the east side of the city and they didn't want to move out of the community.

"We were trying to stay here in the east side. We wanted to help support so to speak the kind of turnaround of the east side area. We see ourselves as being another part of that," said Executive Director Terrence Franklin, L. Hollingworth School for Talented and Gifted.

Officials say construction should be finished in August. The new site will be more than double the size of their current school, creating more classroom space for the young students to learn.

There are no plans regarding what will happen to the schools old building.
