Fueled with great imagination, we take full advantage of our Beacon Hill location. From Preschool to Grade 6, we regularly explore Boston’s educational and cultural sites to enhance and create learning opportunities. For example, when studying about water, we visit a Boston filtration plant, when studying about ancient Greece in Grade 6, we visit the Museum of Fine Arts, and when learning about the Revolutionary War in first grade, we visit Paul Revere’s home.
A quick ride on Boston’s “T” transports us to the world of Ancient Egypt at the MFA to see firsthand the pharaoh’s mask we’ve been designing in class.
We visit the Boston Fire Department on Cambridge Street in Toddler Transition to see our Community Helpers in action.
An afternoon walk for third graders to the Boston Public Library provides glimpses of classical architecture when we study Rome and its structures.
Grade 4 students visit the Lung Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital during our unit on Circulatory and Respiratory Systems.
Grade 6 students visit the Northeastern University Marine Science Center in Nahant to collect field research in tidal pools.
Second graders explore the Boston Composting Center to see what simple machines are used to recycle trash.
