DEWITT — After financial troubles and an uncertain future, Manlius Pebble Hill School says it will stay open next school year.

The school, which is located in DeWitt, currently has approximately 420 students in pre-k through 12th grade. To attract more students, tuition is being lowered for pre-k and kindergarten students. The fall tuition for pre-k and kindergarten will be $13, 750 for the school year.

The school is also under new leadership. Jim Dunaway is now the interim head of school and John Mezzalingua is the new school board president. Earlier this year Headmaster Scott Wiggins stepped down amid financial troubles. Last year the school said it was seeing a decline in enrollment.

MPH is a college prep school which was founded in 1869.
