ADAMS, Mass. — A record 340 students will attend Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School when it opens for its 10th year on Thursday, Aug. 22.

The number of students enrolled is a 10 percent increase from last year.
 
In the past year, BArT received its third charter from the state, allowing it to operate for another 5-year term, as well as raised the school's enrollment cap to 363 students and officially added Pittsfield to the list of municipalities it is chartered to serve.

A number of other changes are set for the upcoming year. First, April West is leaving the classroom after seven years to become the new principal, replacing Ben Klompus who will continue his studies at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
 
High school students will also have the option to play football with St. Joseph's Central High School.
 
The Bo and Katherine Peabody Science Lab was also renovated, now allowing students access to full lab for chemistry and biology.
 
The school also offers an expanded 21st Century Community Learning Center program with extended afterschool activities that run two hours each day. Weeklong programs will run in February and April.
