New school credited for reviving once-troubled Grier Heights neighborhood

Police said crime is down in the Grier Heights neighborhood, and things keep getting better.

A brand-new preschool is being credited as the catalyst. The school replaced a corner store that was a haven for crime.

Channel 9 anchor Blaine Tolison visited the school Monday and spoke with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department about how it is helping to transform the area.

The Learning Collaborative is teaching children to be great students.
