We believe in the transformative power of education. Here, our every action is intentional, so that each student will develop a lifelong love of learning, confidence within a caring community and strength of character.

Our robust academic program is grounded in Core Knowledge, a content-rich, skill-building curriculum that spirals outward in each grade. Our teachers are passionate, creative educators who are deeply committed to the success of each student. Together, these irreplaceable elements act as a catalyst for lifelong learning, achievement, and personal growth.

We value the many benefits resulting from parent involvement in the daily life of our school—Park Street School is an extended family. We celebrate Boston as a living classroom and engage in service projects that help our neighbors and contribute to our city and beyond.

Our Christian foundation affirms each student’s intrinsic worth, points us to truth, shows us how to respect others, make courageous choices, and live lives of compassion, integrity and generosity. We hold that the measure of achievement is more than grades; it is the kind of person you become.

Learning for Life
Our learning environment is joyful and warm, where children are known and loved and where they are encouraged to discover and develop their own voices.
A Vibrant Community

A Christian School Experience

Sharing a great tradition with other local schools – such as Boston Latin, Boston College and Harvard University – Park Street School has been founded and established by Christians seeking to provide an excellent education to Bostonians. Our faith in Jesus Christ is our cornerstone. From that foundation, we seek to provide an environment of acceptance, balance and fairness regarding faith and its questions.

There are five places you might see visible signs of our Christian faith expressed – they are in school chapel, community life, learning from the Bible, and developing character and a heart for others.
