NH Approves New Charter Schools

Fast work after budget deal


The state's Board of Education has given the green light to open three new charter schools, and will hear a presentation next month from a group looking to establish a fourth.

The three schools approved last Thursday were the Gate City School for the Arts in Nashua, the Mountain Village Charter School in Plymouth and the Founders Academy Charter School in Londonderry.

"The Center would like to thank the State Board of Education and the Department of Education for moving quickly to address charter school applicants after the state budget deal was struck," said Matt Southerton, director of the New Hampshire Center for Innovative Schools.
