POL Day Explained

GLCPS Applies for 100 More Seats

Our students, our staff and our families strive for excellence every day. You can see it in many different ways: our strong graduation rate; the high number of graduates who move on to college; our growing dual enrollment program; our emphasis on 21st century skills and community partnerships; and, the way our students improve on MCAS scores as they progress through the years. We consistently surpass the scores of schools in all of the state's gateway cities. Our reputation for creating a school culture where families feel welcomed, respected, and understood means more children than ever are applying to GLCPS, and our waiting list keeps growing every year. For these reasons and more, we have applied for an additional 100 seats. We will continue to work with all of our families so that each and every student achieves at their highest level.  Thank you for your ongoing support. We hope you will continue to advocate for our school, our families, and our community. 
Dr. Stephen Furtado
Executive Director
