The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved plans by the Conservatory Lab Charter School to add a cafeteria, gym and new classroom to its K1-to-grade-2 school at 131 Hancock St. in Dorchester.

The school is planning to use the roughly 6,000-square-foot addition to its current 19,000-square-foot building as a benefit for its current students, rather than for expanding the number of students, its attorney, Donald Wiest, said. The school has a separate school building for students in grades 3-8.

The school, open to students across Boston, was founded on the belief that musical education should be intergral to academic pursuits," Weist said.

we can't build and renovate Boston Public Schools so easily? Our kids deserve state of the art facilities.

They have actually gone into court and blatantly claimed that the government has nothing to say about how they run their government funded school.


Can't make this shit up. Even the other charters are DON'T GO THERE.

Meanwhile, those of us living in the area are wondering why we are paying for their bullshit - and why in the fuck they still got their charter renewed despite this "laws don't apply to us" garbage.
