The Seacoast Charter School is a publicly funded elementary and middle school, uniquely focused on experiencing education through the arts. The school was founded in 2004 serving 8 children in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Over the past nine years, we’ve grown to serve more than 300 children in grades K – 8. We acknowledge that every day provides us opportunity to learn and as we evolve, our focus is not only to provide a nurturing environment for our children, but also grow the connections with the local communities we serve.
PHILOSOPHY AND CURRICULUM
The Mission of the Seacoast Charter School is to provide excellence in core academics and the arts while cultivating the individual qualities and strengths of each child. At the Seacoast Charter School, arts and academics go hand in hand. We believe that the arts bring us joy, and when we feel joy, we learn more deeply and effectively. Through a rich and varied arts program, our students learn to look closely, listen carefully, respond thoughtfully and work collaboratively. Opportunities for creative expression and independent thinking are an integral part of our rigorous academic program. The combination of challenging intellectual and artistic endeavors develops our students’ hearts and minds and enables them to live more fully in the world.
SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT TOURS
Seacoast Charter School has a monthly Spotlight on Learning tour on the third Wednesday of every month at 9 AM. We invite everyone from educators, to business and community leaders, to parents of prospective students to come. The conversation and tour will give you a chance to see the school in action, hear from school staff and parents, and ask questions. The tours are one hour long. Please call us at 603-642-8400 or email to register. Directions
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Seacoast Charter School Board of Trustees is responsible for the governance of the Seacoast Charter School. In practice, this means that they are responsible for oversight of the operations of the school in accord with the charter, the mission, and the budget established annually by the board. In addition, the board is responsible for hiring and firing the Head of School.
Board meetings are public meetings and open to any member of the community. They are typically scheduled for the second Monday of the month at 7 PM. Minutes of the meetings are available here on the website or in the office of the school.
You may contact the Board of Trustees here. Your message will go to the Board Clerk, who will then pass on the information to the other board members.
