Gate City Charter School finds itself outside the Gate City
The school will open on the entire first floor of a multi-tenant building, which is now being renovated by owners Adamain Construction and Development to bring the space up to the code requirements for an elementary school.
While board members were disappointed the new Gate City Charter School will not be located in Gate City, Cevasco said the new site is about a mile from the Nashua border.
Cevasco said school staff will work on arranging car pools for families, and before and after-school programs will be launched to help working parents who will be driving their children to and from school.
The change in locations was an unexpected hurdle for the school that quickly filled its slots for enrollment through a lottery last spring, but also has a long waiting list.
“We were expecting a lot of right-out-of-college teachers,” she said adding that charter school teachers earn significantly less than teachers in public schools.
Cevasco is happy to now be looking ahead to September, and grateful for the support the school has received from the community and especially from Nashua School Superintendent Mark Conrad.
“He told me that important things are never easy,” she said.
