Pottsville, Schuylkill County- As many schools welcomed students back to class today, it'll be a big year for one Schuylkill County school.
This is the first year the Gillingham Charter School welcomed seniors.

The school in Pottsville first opened it's doors three years ago.

Administrators say they stress a relaxed atmosphere to help make students feel like they're at home.

When the seniors graduate at the end of the year, they'll meet all the standards children at a public school would meet.
