Global Learning Charter Public School Home

Serving 500 Students In Grades 5-12

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.

Global Gala Returns After Two-Year Hiatus

The Global Gala, GLCPS’s long-established scholarship fundraising event, returns this year after a two-year hiatus caused by the Covid 19 pandemic. Organizers of the gala have made a few changes that promise to make the event even more fun than in previous years. They have changed the location, hired a new caterer, and added a full (cash) bar. There will still be an auction which is already live and online so that bidders can get a jump on some excellent treasures. The live auction at the event has been eliminated this year but the ticket auction at which gala guests can purchase raffle tickets in hopes of winning some exciting prizes that are not in the bidding auction, is back by popular demand.
