Charter School to host information session
EXETER — Great Bay Charter School is hosting an information session on March 20 for prospective students and their families who are interested in enrolling in grades 6 to 12 in the fall. Applications are due on April 19, 2019.
The session will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. at the school, located in the Tuck Learning Campus at 30 Linden Street in Exeter. Students will get a chance to meet staff from the school and learn about the school’s project-based learning model of education.
At the Great Bay Charter School, the teachers facilitate student learning primarily by designing projects focused upon specific learning targets, helping to guide them through the development of various learning artifacts, and assessing those targets learned. Projects are the primary vehicle by which students demonstrate their learning.
Students are encouraged to personalize their learning, both through projects and extended learning opportunities. Each student develops a goals-driven personalized learning plan and works with a faculty advisor regularly.
As a public charter school, GBCS is a tuition-free alternative to larger, traditional public schools, and is open to students from throughout New Hampshire. Once the spring enrollment period has passed, applications for enrollment are processed on a rolling basis and include a written application, in-person interview and shadow day at the school if requested.
