NJ Mandarin immersion charter waits another month for resolution

June 4, 2011


The controversial Princeton International Charter School will have to wait until at least next month for the zoning Board of Adjustment to make a decision on their its application.

According to members of the zoning board, the meeting will tentatively take place July 7 at the Senior Center at the Municipal Complex on Route 522.

”There is no way we are coming to a conclusion (on the application) tonight,” zoning board chairman Martin Hammer said during the June 2 meeting.

More than 200 people attended the meeting, which took place at the Senior Center because more than 300 people attended the April 14 meeting, causing the crowd to spill out into the foyer and outside the Municipal Building.

Although there was a large crowd to hear the application Thursday night, during the meeting those gathered were mostly silent and attentive to the testimony presented by the applicant, 12 P & Associates, LLC.    12 P & Associates LLC, who will lease space in the former liquor warehouse to both the PIACS charter school and a private school, own the 11-12 Perrine Road building.

PIACS is a Mandarin immersion school where 170 K-2 students from the South Brunswick, Princeton, and West Windsor-Plainsboro districts are planned plan to attend.

The private school sharing the Perrine Road facility, YingHua Language School, is also a Mandarin immersion school, according to the PIACS website.
