I was not happy when my son was assigned to this school since we live over 7 miles away and it takes him 45 minutes on the school bus. But we have realized that we WON the lottery! His teachers have been amazing. While he was on Ms.Hiatt's class she emailed constantly not matter what, I would receive a reply within 24 hours but usually the same day. The communication was amazing! I wish they expanded until 8th grade, its worth the trip!!
My son loves going to school and always has stories to tell about his school day. Not only do they send home notices but they have someone call parents as a reminder for important meetings. Would recommend this school to other parents
It is a school as it should be: small, homy, natural and particular humane. Forced to enrolled my child there, I am very positive surprised and happy to have my child there. The downside is more the way how selfesteam is emphasized with almost faschist methods: may it is necessary, but historical european visions comes up. Not the fault of the school, but the student body is dominant economic depressed people, learning might be challenging for willing students, although I am complete confident of the teachers involved (I spoke already with a lot of open and responsive staff/teachers people). We consider to let our son stay longer (to the end) although a lace to a closer school might be offered to us, because of the quality which is offered. The principal draws many people through her charisma into the school, many volunters e.g. jewish community. I look forward to be involved in the school (e.g. with self proposed pouch recycling program to which the school is very open to. A jewel of the neighborhood.
I absolutely love this school. My child attended this school from 1st grade throughout 5 grade, and has done exceptionally well. The principal and teachers work hard to really teach your children and make sure that exceed the expectations. I would definately recommend this school to anyone
The Gem of Boston Public Schools. Don't miss out on this opportunity. Principal and teachers are committed to giving the children a quality education and a caring loving environment that recognizes and celebrates each child gifts
