Applications Now Being Accepted for 2019-2020 School Year

We are now accepting applications for new students entering grades 5 through 10 for the 2019-2020 school year. The deadline for submitting an application is February 28th. Last year for the first time, GLCPS expanded enrollment to students entering 9th and 10th grade, giving more students the opportunity to attend our high school which has been recognized as one of the top high schools in the country by US World and News Report for five consecutive years.

GLCPS Students Perform Original Work at ‘Hamilton’ Performance

Two GLCPS students were lauded by a theatre of their peers as they performed an original piece on the stage at the Boston Opera House on November 8th. Afterward, they and hundreds of other students from the region were treated to a performance of the Broadway hit “Hamilton: An American Musical.” Jade Pennington and Azara Pereira-Souto performed their original Spoken word piece titled “Boston Massacre,” written by a third student, Raquel Souza. All three students are seniors at GLCPS. Of the hundreds of submissions from students at 50 schools, only 15 were invited to perform theirs on stage.

A Message of Comfort for Victims of Violence

We stand in solidarity with the city of Pittsburgh now mourning the loss of so many good lives during the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Like so many others, we are sad and stunned that people are dying and suffering at the hands of so much unjustified anger and hatred. As educators, what is our role in helping students to understand? GLCPS Executive Director Dr. Stephen Furtado shared his own thoughts on this with staff.

What Lies Beneath New Bedford?

If you could go beneath New Bedford, what would you see? GLCPS art teacher Jon Vecchiarelli, posed that question to 5th graders before they set out to create a mural of what lies beneath the city. Measuring approximately 4 feet by 14 feet, the mural is on display in the school’s lobby. It is large and detailed, realistic and whimsical at the same time.

GLCPS Applies for 100 More Seats

        Within the next couple of months, we expect to hear whether the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has approved our request for an additional 100 seats. We welcome your support and hope you will let the board know that our families, our staff, our alumni and our community support this request. Please consider writing a letter to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voicing your support. If you're not sure what to write, you can use this template letter as a guide. We've also included seven reasons to approve the 100 seat request that could be helpful as you write your letter. We know we can fill those seats because every year, hundreds of students are left on the waiting list. We believe it's unfair to those families who know GLCPS is the best choice for their kids but can't get in because there aren't enough seats. We have the capacity to add classes to accommodate additional students while keeping class size low. Now that we can welcome students who are in high school, we would like to accommodate those who are looking for an excellent high school academic program with a strong college/career planning department. 
              Thank you for supporting all we do TOGETHER at GLCPS. 
Dr. Stephen Furtado
Executive Director
