A Difficult Time for Families at COAH

Dear Parents and Guardians,
            As you may know, the New Bedford campus of City on a Hill will be closing at the end of this school year.  This is an unfortunate situation as 141 students will now need to continue their education at a new school.  We are here to support these students and their families through this difficult time. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any of their students currently as we are at our maximum enrollment.  We will work closely with the New Bedford community and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in their efforts to support these students to ensure that they receive the quality of education they deserve and need.
            I also want to reassure you that the Global Learning Charter Public School is on sound academic and financial ground.  We will continue to ensure that your children will achieve academic success and look forward to an even brighter future in the years to come.  On behalf of all of us at GLCPS, we want to wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving.
Stephen J. Furtado, Ph.D.
Executive Director
