Springfield, MA: Massachusetts State Senator Gale Candaras visited SABIS International Charter School today to learn more about this award-winning school's successful educational program. Senator Candaras was given a tour of one of the first charter schools to open in Massachusetts in 1995 and met with school staff and students.

SABIS International opened in fall 1995 with 450 students in grades K-7 and then added a grade level each year until becoming a K-12 charter school. This school now serves 1,574 in grades K-12 and is the largest charter school in Massachusetts.   It also has the largest charter school waiting list with over 2,800 hoping for an opening to enroll.   SABIS International not only outperforms the local school district, it also beats the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Senator Candaras represents Chicopee, Springfield, East Longmeadow, Hampden, Longmeadow, Ludlow, Wilbraham, Belchertown and Granby.
