HAMPSTEAD — Hampstead Academy administrators will be heading to the Department of Education Thursday requesting permission to add grades nine through 12 to the school.
Currently, the private school houses students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. The school received conditional approval for the project from the Planning Board on April 1.
Hampstead Academy Head of School Liane Odom said the increase in grades will not bring structural changes to the current building and the Advanced Placement-focused curriculum will bring in more teachers to educate the students.
Odom said the school already has enough rooms for subject areas like math, science, social studies, language arts, and homerooms to accommodate the increase in grades should they be added.
