Closed. That's the status of the private elementary school that actor Will Smith launched in California in 2008.
Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith founded the New Village Leadership Academy in Calabasas, which used the Study Tech curriculum method of teaching, designed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.
Many believed the school was a front for the always controversial Scientology organization. The Smiths denied this fact and affiliation.
The official reason for the shuttering of the school has not been given.
