Audubon Charter School Uptown/Upper Campus Gains Live Oak Building for grades 4 to 8

 
Audubon Charter School’s Uptown Upper Campus serving grades 4-8 will move into the Live Oak facility for the 22-23 School Year, announced Audubon Schools CEO Dr. Steve Corbett. 
The recently renovated facility, located at 3128 Constance Street, offers over 84,000 square feet, a theater and auditorium for Audubon’s flourishing arts curriculum, as well as colorful murals along the hallway. It will be the Upper Campus’ permanent home.   Audubon Schools operates two schools: Audubon Charter School Uptown and Audubon Charter School Gentilly. Audubon Uptown’s Lower Campus, serving grades PK-3,  will remain at its current location at 428 Broadway St., as will Audubon Gentilly, serving grades PK-5 at 4720 Painters St. in Gentilly.
According to CEO Corbett, the Live Oak building will be a significant upgrade from Audubon Charter School’s Upper Campus’ current location in the former McDonogh 7 School building at 1111 Milan Street. “We believe this building will be an excellent fit for our upper campus, offering spaces that are optimal for our unique programming and will enable us to provide more enrichment opportunities for our students,” said Dr. Corbett. 
“We are thrilled after many years to have a permanent home for our middle school students and staff,” said Audubon Uptown Upper Campus’ Principal Adrienne Collopy. “We finally have the space needed for our students and our programming to grow and thrive. We look forward to making this beautiful campus our new home.” 
NOLA-PS Superintendent Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. announced his decision yesterday to re-site three charter management organizations as a first step in what will be a multi-year project of District optimization. “These recommendations were made after careful review and evaluation of all applications to determine the optimal qualified operator for each facility,” said Superintendent Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. “I believe these schools will maximize the use of the campuses and continue to fulfill the District’s mission of providing a high-quality education for the students it serves.”
