Science charter school would serve North Shore

SALEM — A proposal to open a new charter school serving the North Shore that emphasizes science and math has made it to the final round of selection before the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Pioneer Charter School of Science II, which operates a grade 7-12 school in Everett, submitted a proposal to open a charter school in Saugus that would serve Peabody, Salem, Danvers, Lynn and Saugus.

Pioneer also proposed a school in Woburn serving Woburn, Stoneham, Medford, Melrose, Wakefield and Saugus.

The original Pioneer Charter School of Science opened in the 2007-2008 school year.

The 12 finalists now file detailed proposals with the state, which will hold hearings this winter. The board of the DESE is scheduled to vote on the proposals in February.
