EQUITAS: Facilities. GPSN’s grant to Equitas Academy Charter Schools will help fund a permanent campus for the organization’s third elementary school, which is currently operating in leased space. The new two-story facility will house classrooms, a multi-purpose room and a lunch area with an adjacent outdoor playground area. It should open by next fall.

Equitas’ campuses have outperformed neighboring schools with similar demographics. Its leaders believe they can better continue their academic success in a new, state-of-the-art facility.
