LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new school will not only change an empty Clarksville, Ind. storefront, but also the way children learn in the classroom.

On Tuesday, officials with the Clarksville Community School Corporation broke ground on a new project-based learning high school. The school is being built at the site of the old Value City department store on Eastern Boulevard.

Project-based learning involves students following a learn-by-doing curriculum.

The new school doesn't have a name yet, but is scheduled to open in August 2014. It will start with a freshman class and grow in phases.
