Mission Statement

The mission of Global Learning Charter Public School (GLCPS) is to ensure that all students achieve academic excellence, are ready for the rigors of higher education, and master essential skills that prepare them for the economic, social and civic challenges of a 21st century, global society.
Vision Statement

We have created a unique educational environment in which student success is measured beyond standardized tests. Students demonstrate academic excellence and mastery of essential skills. At GLCPS, essential skills include: technology literacy, public speaking, global citizenship and arts exploration.
We have created a school where the development of standards and frameworks for school accountability are matched by:
1. Preparing young people for the global, multi-cultural and technology-rich society and economy;
2. teaching methods that ensure that the learning needs of each student are met; and
3. a school culture that promotes the personal qualities of initiative, responsibility and community connectedness.
We share our best practices with colleagues in New Bedford and beyond through a variety of dissemination opportunities.

Upcoming Events

Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated every year beginning September 15th through October 15th. We at GLCPS embrace this opportunity to spotlight the cultures of so many of our students and families. Our teachers have a number of activities and lessons planned throughout the month aimed at shining the light on what is only a small percentage of the extraordinary number of Latino leaders, innovators, artists and scientists, most of whom have have to overcome persecution, violence, discrimination and other hardships to succeed. We invite you to celebrate with us! Thank you to our English language teacher Ms. Elizabeth Fernandes for creating this presentation.
