Chester Charter School for the Arts (“CCSA”) previously operated out of a modified warehouse building and had students enrolled from kindergarten to 10th grade. The space presented significant limitations and due to its prior use as a warehouse, the interior layout did not adequately address the proper needs of a permanent school environment. Additionally, the building’s landlord would not renew the school’s lease. Understanding the demands for a quality academic and arts school that met needs of the community, CCSA needed to expand into a new facility that offered the space and amenities necessary to allow students to be successful while the school proceeded in a timely fashion to ensure students and enrollment were not disrupted.
