Last night, parents, students, and staff from Highville Charter School gathered at New Haven City Hall in support of the school’s move from Hamden to Science Park in New Haven.
Students from Highville’s Model United Nations club testify to the board.
The group spent over an hour with the Board of Aldermen’s Legislation Committee, which needed to re-zone a building so that it could be used to house the school.
Highville, which has been serving families from Newhallville and Hamden’s Highwood neighborhood for over fifteen years, is a critical part of a New Haven charter school community that serves more than two thousand students.
Northeast Charter Schools Network Advocacy Manager Jose Alfaro spoke in support of the move, testifying, “quality schools like Highville strengthen a community, and Newhallville parents and children deserve that support. The neighborhood will benefit when Highville moves closer to its students.”
