"the unique academic experience that students have come to expect"

Is that the unique experience of moving campuses multiple times in four years...only to get kicked out of your school at Christmas for a project without financing or a business plan...and then get moved to modular units far away?

The long, sad saga of Priestley Charter School continues beyond it's time at McDonogh No. 11 School in the LSU Footprint:

The Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) announced on July 21, 2011, that Priestley Charter School of Architecture and Construction will be re-named Architecture Design Engineering Preparatory High School (ADEP High).

In late 2010, the Priestley Board of Directors voted to relinquish its charter to OPSB, citing ongoing concerns over finances and enrollment. ADEP High, located at 4300 Almonaster Ave., is now being run as a traditional school under the OPSB, with open enrollment for the 2011-2012 school year.
