Global Learning Charter Public School

Open to New Bedford residents, Global Learning Charter Public School (GLCPS) is a tuition-free public charter school that serves 500 students in grades 5-12. In order to generate a culture of personalization, our school setting and class sizes are deliberately small. GLCPS offers an exciting and challenging interdisciplinary curriculum that follows and builds upon the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Our diverse student body, faculty and administration know each other well, and teachers tailor the curriculum to the needs and level of each student.

Students learn to work collaboratively in teams, use technology meaningfully in their coursework, strengthen all elements of their communication skills, as well as develop the necessary skills to become engaged and ethical contributors to a global society. We capitalize on the exceptional resources of our region (for example, marine sciences and wind energy), and tie these resources to our curriculum and instruction.

GLCPS is partnered with High Tech High Learning® Network of Schools in San Diego, California and is the only school on the East Coast to have a QualComm® Thinkabit™, designed to show students from all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds that they can be part of inventing the wireless world of the future.
