BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — A school with rich history has opened in Bentonville.

Six hundred students will attend Evening Star Elementary School this fall. A ribbon cutting was hosted Thursday morning, Aug. 8 at the school.

The school’s name is a tribute to the original Evening Star School, a one-room school house built in 1884.

The new school is located less than a quarter-mile from where the first Evening Star was located.

Evening Star Alumna Marlene Sands, “It’s amazing the state-of-the-art this school is, and I’m just excited that the kids around Cave Springs will have the opportunity to go to school here.”
