Takes issue with story headline

Letter to the Editor

I would like to thank David Brooks for taking the time to talk with me about the change in location for the Gate City Charter School for the Arts. After the care he put into writing a factual, comprehensive article, I was dismayed to pick up my newspaper and read the printed headline: “School ditches Nashua plans.”

Your choice of headline insinuates carelessness on the part of our board of trustees. Quite the opposite is true. When presented with the dilemma of losing our developer in the final hour, our board rallied support from community members, real estate professionals, and education officials to make an informed decision on behalf of the students and staff we were entrusted to represent. ...

The building codes related to an elementary school are extensive and finding a location to house a school opening with 140 students was a challenge. Our only viable option, a beautiful one, was 7 Henry Clay Drive in Merrimack.

We are grateful to the owners of that property for their investment in the Gate City Charter School for the Arts. Now that our school has a beautiful, safe, long-term home, our school community can focus on curriculum and community building.

We look forward to our first day of school.

We invite the Telegraph to cover our future school events and trust that your headlines will match the care of the reporting.
