Side By Side Charter School opens its new William O. Murphy Upper School!


Carver partners with Side By Side Charter School to bring its students after school programming. The new school year begins at Side By Side on August 29, 2018, and we are excited for all that awaits our students there. 

The start of the 2018-19 school year also marks the official opening of the new William O. Murphy Upper School at Side by Side! This will be an exciting year for all of us as we prepare to make use of a brand new, state-of-the-art Upper School facility.  

This new building will be the primary location for all of the content area courses for all grade 6-8 students, the students in Carver's after school program.  Also, in addition to housing the middle schoolers, all Side by Side students in grades Kindergarten through 8th will now be participating in Art class in the new Art/Multi-purpose classroom in this new facility.  The school's Special Education department, Student Services offices and Collaborative Learning Center will also be located in this new building.  

This new building is the grand result of mighty effort and generosity on the part of many advocates, not least William Murphy and his family. St. Joseph's Parish is of course at the center of this new beginning. The CT Office of School Construction Grants, Mayor Harry Rilling, Stein/Troost Architecture, AV Tuchy Builders, and especially CT State Senator Bob Duff worked in concert to make this new building possible. 

Congratulations, Side By Side Charter School!
