New Hampshire Students Can Go to School in a Mall Starting in September
Starting on September 4th, a former department store inside the Steeplegate Mall in Concord, New Hampshire will be home to a new charter school.
The space formerly occupied by Bon-Ton, will now be home to the Capital City Public Charter School.
A report from WMUR said parents and potential students were giving a tour and shown how dressing rooms and clothing racks will be transformed to classrooms, a library and even a theatre.
Stephanie Alicea, the alternative public school's founder said the Department of Education approved the mall space for grades sixth through eighth. Alicea hopes the Capital City Public Charter School will expand from 60 students to more than 300. She also hopes to be able to teach all grades at some point in the future.
According to the article, there will be two teachers for every 30 students, along with staff. Students from across the Granite State can sign up.
