ORCA Says “Yes” in Support of NHS

At the February 24 meeting of the Olde Richmond Civic Association (ORCA), more than 60 residents issued a non-binding sentiment vote about their support of the new neighbor opening their doors this upcoming fall.

NHS School at St. Anne’s is the new tenant coming to the building formerly housing the St. Anne Parish School at Cedar and Tucker streets. The former Catholic elementary school has been vacant since closing due to low enrollment in 2011. NHS Schools is the education sector of NHS Human Services, a 40-year-old organization that provides services to individuals with special needs.

The informational meeting took place at Maritime Academy Charter High School, 2700 E. Huntington St. There, residents voted 59-9 in support of the new school after a presentation and question-and-answer session led by NHS Schools staff.
