As active learners in Kindergarten through Grade 2, we develop our creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration skills.
We enjoy phonics training, quality children’s literature, writing, and a comprehensive study of history beginning with ancient civilizations. In Math, we master the basic elements and become proficient in mathematical reasoning and practical application through the use of manipulatives, modeling, and problem-solving.
Our exploration centers feature hands-on activities that correspond with skills and concepts we are learning in Math, social studies, Bible, and literature from story time. Design learning is integrated into our units and subjects of science, math, literature, or history. We love our S.T.E.A.M. centers where we build, code, draw, create, and collaborate. You can find us using “I Can Draw” books, constructing a marble run with Marble Tracks, building with Citiblocs and Magatiles, painting with watercolors, or practicing coding with a robot.
The hours of operation for Grades 1-2 are from 8:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. The curriculum is an integral part of our learning environment, reflects our mission statement, and meets and exceeds the frameworks put forth by the Massachusetts Department of Education.

We utilize students’ strengths to support further growth, and foster a love and enjoyment of reading.
We teach students how to become learners through active, fun, engaging, and multi-sensory lessons that provide them with engaging and challenging choices.
We encourage students to use Social/Emotional Tools such as collaboration, problem-solving, and communication to build a supportive and productive learning environment.
The best benefit to attending school in the heart of Boston is all the learning that takes place outside our school walls! We explore the ancient civilizations of Greece and Egypt at the Museum of Fine Arts or see constellations spin over our heads inside the Museum of Science. It’s where we learn to make a difference, even at a young age. We play games with residents of an elderly complex; express appreciation to the firefighters, crossing guards, or mail carriers of our city with handmade cards; or spend time with preschoolers from a daycare for the homeless. Being a student in the city means we always learn!
