Twelve years after it first opened its doors, Greater Brunswick Charter School finally has the building of its dreams, and thanks in part to the work of Build with Purpose, the school began the 2010 school year in its newly expanded facility. The expansion doubled the size of the facility to a total of 40,000 square feet. The charter school has been at its current location since 2003 but occupied only half of the building renting the other half to small businesses. But with the tenants gone as of 2009, construction crews began transforming the vacant space into a top-notch educational facility.
Workers erected the metal framework for more than a dozen classrooms and a gymnasium with a regulation-size basketball court (shown above). The school’s former community room was converted into a media center and classrooms, a new faculty room was added, and an old classroom grew large enough to accommodate the music program. GBCS and Build with Purpose celebrated the completion at a building dedication on October 27, 2010.
