A school for students with developmental disabilities is opening in New Windsor.

The Abilities First school hosted a ribbon cutting on Tuesday.

The school will serve up to 40 students between ages 5 to 21 from throughout the Hudson Valley.

Abilities First offers students educational and therapeutic services who aren't able to attend public school. The school is based in Poughkeepsie, but officials saw a need to have an additional space in Orange County.

"We realized over 40 kids were being bused to our school in Poughkeepsie from Newburgh and other parts of Orange County. And we started to, our team and our board of directors, got together and decided that we could do better for those kids," said Abilities First CEO Dr. Jeffery Fox.   

Students are expected to transition into the new space from their temporary location in Cornwall later this week.
