The 15-year-old Side by Side Charter School was one of the first charter schools in the state. The school features a core belief that a child's intellectual, social and emotional growth develops through experiences in the classroom and in the outside world. School officials say that the curriculum, while in transition to meet common core standards, incorporates challenging interactive lessons, partnerships with neighboring museums and art centers, Long Island Sound science studies, and field trips to local commercial enterprises and municipal offices as well as historical and cultural destinations.
