Newly Elected Student Council Launches Fundraiser for Puerto Rico

The new elected GLCPS Student Council is off to a running start. During their very first meeting, they elected officers and then began planning their first action item: a fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Fiona in Puerto Rico which caused widespread destruction in the US territory on September 18th. The fundraising idea was the brainchild of freshman Xavier Echeverria-Mojica, who expressed concern for relatives and friends who live in Puerto Rico.

GLCPS Celebrates 20 Years of Building Life-Long Learners

It was 2002 when the Global Learning Charter Public School welcomed its first students. We want everyone to know not only how far we've come but our plans for the future! GLCPS was the first charter school in New Bedford. It was arguably the first school in the area to incorporate technology into every classroom and to put a computer into every student's hands. Today, we are looking forward to expanding into our new state-of-the-art STEAM Education Center which is being created in the building adjacent to the Main Campus building. This building will house a Maker Space, fully equipped science labs, art rooms with a working kiln, and a beautiful music room.

Hundreds Come To Back to School Night BBQ

Something happened at this year's Back to School Night BBQ that hasn't happened for years and almost - almost - caused the event to fizzle. It rained. But it did not rain enough to put a damper on one of the school's favorite events. Hundreds turned out to talk to teachers, pick up uniforms and information packets, reunite with friends, and eat delicious cookout fare. There was even entertainment by the Cape Verdean drum group, Batacuda Otu Level.
